The main difficulty in ministry is offering not what Job's three friends do, which is "ashy maxims," but rather really listening and facilitating honest conversations. Some thing I learned from Michael Howard is the importance of beginning with a close reading of Scripture and then facilitating a discussion where the Word of God can be applied by individuals to their experiences. In this Bible study, Michael is modeling this approach. I also learned a lot from my former principal, a Sister of Mercy, who showed me how wisdom and inspiration can be found in mantras. One that I use, and share with others, that I learned from her is "Be good, Do good, Be a power for good."
