“This course will attend to theoretical and practical issues related to pastoral care among persons in various stages of life, including those who are encountering transitions such as birth, baptism, marriage, career transition, accident, illness, or death. Biblical and theological understandings along with a diversity of resources, methods, and approaches will give insight into effective ways of ministering to others. The course will focus not only on care given by pastors, but also on mutual care offered by people in the congregation” (as posted at www.cmu.ca).
