CTU Online Retreat 2014: Reflecting on Ministry

posted Dec 12, 2014, 10:33 AM by Angel Barrera   [ updated Dec 31, 2014, 7:24 AM ]
What is Ministry? What do ministers do? What are some of the attitudes that ministers need to cultivate?

These are all questions that Steve Bevans,S.V.D., in this year's retreat, addresses in seven short presentations. He doesn't answer them directly, though. Rather, he gives a number of "theses" or "descriptions" of what ministry is and what ministers are about.

Some of these theses: Ministry is done in the name of Jesus Christ; Ministry is ecclesial; Ministry is collaborative; Ministry is being ministered to; Ministry is open to all Christians.

Watch the videos. Reflect on the quotations for reflection. Pray for guidance. Share your thoughts and reflections with others. Have a great retreat!
