Creators of new Church of the Brethren ministers’ manual seek submissions




For the latest Brethren news go to the main Newsline page

Creation of a new ministers’ manual for the Church of the Brethren is underway, and the planning committee is seeking submissions for the manual. “For All Who Minister,” the current manual, was published in 1993, and much has happened to the ways in which we understand and participate in ministry since that time.

Do you enjoy writing prayers? Is there a love feast service you’ve crafted that has been very meaningful? Have you written some helpful materials for anointing or child dedication? Please send them to the committee for consideration. The committee hopes to include a variety of resources for worship and ordinances in the Church of the Brethren, using both traditional and fresh approaches.

Find a list of exactly what kinds of resources are being sought at www.brethren.org/ministryoffice/documents/submissions-ministers-manual.pdf .

Submissions will be received via the Church of the Brethren website through Sept. 15. The committee will then review the submissions and choose resources for final publication in the new ministers’ manual, which is expected in 2018 and will be published by Brethren Press.

For specific questions contact Dana Cassell at dcassell@brethren.org . Go to www.brethren.org/ministryoffice/ministers-manual.html to make submissions online.
