Theology for Ministry

Theology for Ministry

Margaret Lavin believes that lay and consecrated ministers benefit from a theological foundation to what they do. This means asking who we believe our God to be, and who we are in relationship to God and to those we wish to serve. Lavin’s faith-filled approach draws out the pastoral implications of these themes and reminds us that each of us is called to minister in some way to the larger community.

More and more people are involved in ministry today. Whether as lay pastoral assistants, chaplains, pastors, religious education teachers, or youth group leaders, more Catholics are involved in ministry work. But what is ministry? How do we do ministry, and why? Margaret Lavin believes that lay and consecrated ministers benefit from a theological foundation to what they do. This means asking who we believe our God to be, and who we are in relationship to God and to those we wish to serve. Lavin’s faith-filled approach draws out the pastoral implications of these themes and reminds us that each of us is called to minister in some way to the larger community. “Our mandate to minister,” she writes, “is deeply embedded in the Christian understanding of the human condition.”
