Although every situation is as unique as the persons involved, Twitchell identifies key principles to help the pastor respond in any situation with grace. He provides practical help, as well as a theological foundation on which to base ministry to the grieving which includes the whole faith community. This is a vast resource for anyone wanting to know how to respond to persons dealing with grief. Death comes as an uninvited interruption of life. The disruption forces individuals to abandon regular routines so they can deal with urgent concerns, such as caring for a dead body, planning a funeral, and beginning the journey through grief.
In days clouded by sorrow, pastors embody the Good Shepherd who walks through the valley with those who mourn. In just the second week as a pastor, Jamie recognizes the nuances of ministry not evident in a classroom as he steps alongside of a family mourning the death of its matriarch.
This fictional account sets the context for the book. Presence intentionally begins with biblical theologies of death, dying, and the funeral service.
Those theological tenets are then applied to the practice of bereavement ministry. By considering the ways that God is made manifest in seasons of sadness, pastors discover guidance for the incarnational ministry of presence. The book concludes with a discussion of formative practices that aid in the development of the being and doing of pastoral ministry when people grieve.
With the ministry of presence, the pastor as a person provides deep comfort when words may seem shallow. Lifelong ministry practitioners will appreciate the reminder of the theological foundation that undergirds ministry actions. Presence provides numerous examples of the significant role played by pastors through which God comforts those walking in the shadows of death.
