About this product
- DescriptionMaking the case for the relevance of pastoral care today, this book explores the role of pastoral care through the prism of music. Using musical analogies, the author provides a new way of understanding and practising pastoral care, grounded in practical theology. Challenging overemphasis on mission, he shows that pastoral care remains essential to the life of the church, especially when engaging with extreme situations such as dying, suffering or war, and considers the role of pastoral carers in the specific pastoral encounter and in the life of the church in general.
- Author BiographyThe Revd Dr Gregory Clifton-Smith is Close Vicar and Honorary Canon at Winchester Cathedral. Having initially trained as a musician, Gregory worked in parish ministry for eight years before moving into healthcare chaplaincy, working as Assistant Chaplain at The Royal Berkshire Hospital in Reading and Senior Chaplain at St. Mary's Hospital and the Earl Mountbatten Hospice in Newport on the Isle of Wight.
