"Near the end of Hemingway's A Farewell to Arms , there is a word that has continued to stay with me. He said, 'The world breaks everyone. Then some become strong at the broken places.' As a pastor, I have seen people become strong at the broken places, and I have seen people become broken up at the broken places of life. I hope that the reader will learn how to assist those who are suffering, and will, at the same time, learn something of great value for living in these days." - Author Joe Pennel Unfortunately, suffering is a part of living. None of us have escaped this fact. Even so, it's difficult to know how to console someone going through a broken place. In The Gift of Presence, Bishop Joe Pennel offers practical help to give confidence and skill to clergy and laity serving people in grief. With a central message on the importance of simply being there, Pennel combines practical "how-to's" with prayers, readings, and services. This small book outlines real ways to help through planning visits, writing notes, finding scriptures and prayers to read, avoiding cliches, and thinking through the theology of God, humans, and suffering. The Gift of Presence includes pertinent topics such as: the ministry of presence, quietness, sincerity, and the art of helping.
