Presenter: Melissa M. Kelley, STM associate professor of pastoral counseling and contextual education

This presentation looks anew at the ministry of pastoral care and its capacity for facilitating healing.  Professor Kelley identifies three of these capacities: providing a sense of holding, examining the implicit theological drama, and rearticulating narratives after disruption.  She then explores how these tie in to God's relationship with the person through Christ.
