Pastors and their families will see why solutions they have tried often backfire and make matters worse. They will discover a way out of the death spiral of tension, conflict, and relocation. 20% to 40% of parish pastors are experiencing some level of career burnout. Quiet Conversations traces the ministry experience of Pastor Paul (and his spouse Kristin) as they discover what has gone wrong and find a way forward.It explains practical examples of attitudes and behaviors that provide a way forward for weary ministry leaders--and those not yet at that stage. Quiet Conversations has been lauded by weary and not weary pastors alike for the simple, and yet profound, insights it provides about what works and does not work in parish ministry.
