Clergy have a pivotal role in creating and nurturing church communities in which all people can grow up into Christ. This book explores the nature of that role by considering key similarities with the essential but often conflicting demands of motherhood. Like mothers, clergy need to preserve and hold people faithfully, while encouraging them to grow, take initiatives and become more confident and self-supporting. This book will help clergy to think about how this is achieved through the myriad of 'small' things they do from day to day, highlighting skills such as comforting, cherishing and multi-attending - skills that are centrally important but often unarticulated and undervalued.

Review:

'Emma Percy has written the most creative book on parish ministry that I have ever read. Taking the maternal metaphor, she writes in engaging ways about the demands of ministry. Packed full of insights on every page, touches of humour and a highly original argument, this is a vitally important book that anyone involved in ministry should read.' --Dr Ian Markham, Dean and President of Virginia Theological Seminary, Alexandria

'As the Church looks for new images and patterns to describe parish ministry, the wisdom of Emma Percy s approach in this timely book deserves to be explored, inhabited and enjoyed. The result is sure to be both surprising and liberating.' --John Pritchard, Bishop of Oxford

'This is an exceptionally wise book. Emma Percy uses the metaphor of mothering to explore and name the skills needed in ministry. She introduces the key concept of a priest simply being good enough for a parish to thrive into maturity. Her wisdom is practical, warm and forgiving. Every priest and ordinand should have a well-thumbed copy.' --Miranda Threlfall-Holmes, Vicar of Belmont and Pittington and author of Being a Chaplain

From the Author:

Revd Dr Emma Percy is Chaplain, Welfare Dean and Fellow of Trinity College, Oxford.
