An introduction from the Editor
Within the pages of Sharing the Practice you will meet pastors around the world who generously share their practice of ministry… in articles, columns, and reviews of new resources. The journal of the Academy of Parish Clergy is perhaps unlike any other clergy journal because it is written by and for parish pastors. The journal is based upon the proposition that the real experts in parish ministry are working pastors. The articles are written by people like you and me, who know what it’s like “in the trenches.”
Sharing the Practice is good news for pastors. You don’t have to go it alone. Since 1971 the journal has been your ministry partner: bringing ideas, insights, and inspiration to you from pastors everywhere. What you see in the journal is what is practiced in the Academy of Parish Clergy… collegiality, professionalism, fellowship, and a safe place for clergy to meet on a level field.
The journal comes to your study or residence four times a year. Within Sharing the Practice are forty pages of articles, columns, and reviews of new resources… all written by parish pastors, for parish pastors.
The journal comes with your membership in the Academy of Parish Clergy, or you may subscribe to the journal alone. I would be happy to send you a sample copy of Sharing the Practice, compliments of the Academy of Parish Clergy. Just send me your name, the house of worship you serve, and complete mailing address with zip code. I will race to the Post Office … well, let’s just say you will get it soon! In addition, publishing houses and libraries are welcome to subscribe to the journal, especially those at seminaries.
