Fit to Lead: Sustaining Effective Ministry in a Changing World by Chris Edmondson
Fit to Lead offers both a reflective and practical guide to ordained ministry. The health and well-being of its clergy is crucial to the church's effectiveness and at a time when church and society are changing rapidly with inevitable consequences for the priotities and roles of all church leaders. Chris Edmondson considers how clergy might look after themselves by following Jesus's own patterns and priorites , what support clergy can expect from church structures and claims clergy families need support too. Looking to the future, this book explores what might be possible for the effective care and education of clergy of all denominations and traditions.
