sfood h "a revjd pastoral process"
here's my incipient process right now:
- greet pt. elicit pt to candidly tell experience/story
- show them you've heard their story by recounting yr core understandings of their sharings
- facilitate exploration of their feelings in the moment of recounting the story
- aid them in articulating their primary emotions and triggers
- guide them to reflect on their sources of spiritual strength/drain: key relationships with divinity within, between, among, and beyond
- (have fun brainstorming on ideas)
- send whiteheadian process theology angels from god for potentially limitless list of potential actions
- consider ramifications, risks, theological and moral reflection
- narrow down and engage with a choice
- encourage pt toward spiritual growth through practicing that choice and allowing it to bloom into the world.
next up, sfood h "a revjd prophetic practice"
