Together Through the Storm: A Practical Guide to Christian Care

Together Through the Storm: A Practical Guide to Christian Care

Sally Sims

$16.99

Paperback

In our fallen world, episodes of sickness, suffering, and other trials are all too common. And the Bible's clear call for us to show Christian love and care means we know we shouldn't sit idly by while people around us go through these tough times.

Yet our genuine concern for others is often hindered by valid fears - the fear of not knowing what to do or what to say; the fear of putting our foot in it and making things worse; or the fear that involvement may take us beyond our own personal resources.

In Together Through the Storm, Sally Sims helps us overcome these fears by setting out clear biblical foundations and very practical guidance for Christian care that is based in the word of God and in Christian hope.

Sally brings a tremendously useful mix of life experiences to this important book, including training and practice as a nurse, study in pastoral care and chaplaincy, extensive reading and research, years of coordinating and providing pastoral care in her church, and, of course, personally persevering through her own times of trial.

Reading Together Through the Storm will help any Christian to develop in their ability to care for others, but it also provides a useful foundation for training a 'care team' in your church.

Terrific Read
5 stars By Mortoise, Mar 26 2017
This is a very short book on Pastoral Care or 'Christian Care,' as the author terms it, to distinguish it from being mistaken for 'Pastoral Ministry' or 'Pastoral Counselling.'   Though a short book in itself, do not be misled - this book contains a wealth of information, detail and suggestions that makes it an excellent resource;  likewise, too, a book that invites the reader to  'keep on reading' (I read it over a few days but shall now re-read it to get the full impact).   A friend of mine also bought a copy to read himself as we are both into counselling.    If you help others, then buy this book - you'll not be disappointed and the cost of the book is a worthy investment for helping you to gain insights into what it means to offer 'Christian Care' to those who may be in need of your services
