Welcome to an adventure in healing and wholeness!

Tending to the Holy: The Practice of the Presence of God in Ministry has been named the 2009 Book of the Year by the Academy of Parish Clergy!
Tending to the Holy invites pastors to embody their deepest beliefs in the routine and surprising tasks of ministry. Tending to the Holy integrates the wisdom and practices of the Christian spiritual tradition with the commonplace practices of pastoral ministry. Bruce and Katherine Epperly utilize a variety of spiritual disciplines to provide a framework for helping clergy nurture the awareness of God, creative imagination, and personal well-being in every aspect of their ministerial lives.
There is more!
The story is told of the first European cartographers. At the western edges of their maps, they wrote, ne plus ultra or there is no more. After the voyages of Columbus and others, they appended their maps with the words, plus ultra, there is more, even though they could barely fathom the wonders of the new land. Thousands of years before the first Europeans arrived on American soil, other adventurers journeyed from Asia to the Americas in quest for that same mysterious frontier. They discovered that there was more to their world than they had previously imagined.
