about this item

Henri Nouwen’s statement that too many clergy are “lonely ministers practicing lonely ministry” can be amplified in the years leading up to and immediately following retirement. Although there are books about retirement in general, clergy have unique personal and professional dimensions to retiring. Stepping Aside, Moving Ahead provides a clergy-oriented context. The author begins with letters from clergy nearing retirement about the issues they are facing and structures the book in the following way:
  • Opening Letters from clergy
  • Foundations (the formative dynamics that create a good retirement)
  • Movements (the formative transitions that lead to a good retirement)
  • Actions (the specific behaviors that produce a good retirement)
  • Outcomes (the attitudes which emerge from a good retirement)
