“ I believe that the health and well-being of clergy are essential to the health and strength of the church. Conversely, congregations need to strive to become the caring community of Christ in which all, inclusive of those Called to Ordered Ministry, can be nurtured and sustained. It is through our compassion and care for all that we speak clearly to the world of the good news of Christ. ”
