AnamCara 2009 edition

“In the searing fires of pastoral ministry, how can one solitary person keep a healthy perspective on his or her calling in a way that honors the calling and also honors the humanity of the pastor . . . The experience [Anam Cara] reminded me of what I should never have forgotten, namely that God never called me to be a lone ranger. The gift of others—for support, for critique, for spiritual nurture, for practical ideas—has transformed my ministry. And the experience was even more helpful in that it broke me out of my Presbyterian cocoon! Baptists, Methodists, Lutherans, Congregationals as partners with me on the way.”

—Pete Peery
Former Pastor, First Presbyterian Church,
Asheville, North Carolina
