Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: What is a priest? What is a ministry? How is one shaped or formed as an ordained minister? How does one recognize a call to ordained ministry? How does one relate the ministries of lay and ordained? These questions are explored in these short vignettes by Episcopal priest Bart Sarjeant. All of the more than 200 stories come from his own personal experiences as a priest in the Episcopal church for more than thirty-five years. The stories range from the very personal to the very pastoral, from his work with teenagers to his preparation of hundreds of couples for marriage, and from having to face a diagnosis of potentially terminal cancer to his longtime fascination with cars and motorcycles. Sprinkled with on the spot humor, all told in the first person, the reader shares Father Bart's life journey. We see that it is possible for congregational ministry to have a strategic impact on much broader mission work. His book is an example of the Church at its best. It shows the height, depth, breadth, variety and profundity of what it means to be a priest in the modern world.
