Publisher's Description

  • A distinctive resource that deals with all the practicalities of the Episcopal culture for those preparing for--and exercising--ministry in the Episcopal Church
  • Answers neglected yet difficult questions around clothes (not just clerical attire), money, relationships and conversation
  • A "complete guide to a sub-culture," that can help clergy person serve the Episcopal Church more effectively

What is the appropriate attire for an Episcopal priest at the events associated with the service
in the Book of Common Prayer, the “Celebration and Blessing of a Marriage?” What does it
mean to be an icon of Christ at a cocktail party? How does one live with sensitive confidential
information from a parishioner? These questions might seem almost trivial yet are deeply
serious. The Episcopal Church is a distinctive culture: effective ministry needs an understanding
of the distinctive Episcopal culture.

At one level, this is a book that introduces and explains the Episcopal faith to a potential priest
who wants to be effective in this world. At another level, this book is a reflection on the meaning
and nature of the holy mystery of priesthood.

Drawing upon his rich parish experience in the Episcopal Church, Hawkins distils a wealth
of practical experience and tips to enhance the training of seminarians and the ministries of
established priests. Hawkins takes the reader through the pastoral offices with theological
reflection and vignettes in order to encourage “good priestly habits.” Ideal reading for anyone
wishing to serve the Episcopal Church in an ordained capacity.
