Ministering Elders Articles

More About Care Ministry

  • The Person is a Physical-Spiritual Unity
  • 1. Job speaks after being devastated by one loss and catastrophe after another:

    Job 17:1  "My spirit is broken, my days are cut short, the grave awaits me."


  • Listen For Feelings
  • Usually we connect helpfully with others when we respond to their emotions in that moment.

    The trouble is few tell us directly what they are feeling.  They talk about what happened, but seldom add how they are feeling about it.


  • Listening With Care
  • Listening---

    1.  ...depends on this desire:  "I want to hear how life is for you."

    2.  ...is not passive.  It is active, energy consuming, takes work.

    3.  ...is not just being silent.  It includes responding, inquiring, and words or sounds that encourage and invite the other to say more, to talk about what is hurting, worrying, frightening, challenging them.


  • People are Spiritual Beings
  • It does nothing to encourage a broken motorcycle.  It stays the same.  There is no improvement.  The same with refrigerators, television sets and power saws. They can be repaired but encouragement means nothing to them.
