Loss, mental well-being, and self compassion: Conversations with Joyce Ann Mercer

Recently pastoral theologian Eileen Campbell-Reed (Union Theological Seminary) sat down with our journal editor, Joyce Ann Mercer (Yale Divinity School), and recorded a series of conversations about loss and grief, self compassion, and mental wellbeing. The brief blogs and videos (4 to 9 minutes each) are presented in five episodes (183-187) at Three Minute Ministry Mentor. Each conversation (also available as a podcast) raises important questions and offers insight for leading a faith community in the aftermath of the Covid-19 pandemic and the multiple pandemics it revealed. Dr. Campbell-Reed is also making available her #Pandemic Pastoring Report wish shared her research with over 100 lay leaders and clergy about this emerging era of ministry.
