Paraclesis: Journeying Together

Full Product Description

Who Cares? 

If the answer isn't 'The Church', then there is a problem. A problem which Trevor Partridge seeks to solve in 'Paraclesis'.

But what is Paraclesis?

Put simply, it means 'one who comes alongside'. It's people joining with other people to help and care for others. It's the role the Church was born to fill.

So that's what Trevor Partridge wants to do, help the Church fill that role in the world. 

He's made a six-week guide to enable and support the Church, not only in show why help is important but in how as well. Knowing how to help is the most difficult stumbling block to caring. One of many. 

But there is hope for the Church to be a place of care for the community. 

Each of the six-week's topics is made of daily readings and reflections set to only last 10-15 minutes at a time. Each day is filled with verses, sermon notes, action plans, and a space to write notes and thoughts and ideas.  Yet, in such a short time, the Church can grow it's love of, and ability to, care.

Every week in the Guide has a different theme to help expand and deepen the Church's calling to care:

Week 1 - Caring;
Week 2 - Loving;
Week 3 - Journeying;
Week 4 - Living;
Week 5 - Healing;
Week 6 - Connecting.

Building up a culture of care brings the Church closer to it's community, and to being like Christ who, as Paul writes:

'[...] comes alongside us when we go through hard times, and before you know it, he brings us alongside someone else who is going through hard times so that we can be there for that person just as God was there for us.' - 2 Corinthians 1:4, The Message

So, next time someone sees the word Paraclesis and asks you what it means, you won't just be able to tell them.

You'll show them too.

Publisher's Description

This Daily Guide is part of the six-week Paraclesis: Journeying Together local church pastoral care initiative.

Paraclesis is designed to support and empower people in churches to be able to come alongside others using their life experiences to care more effectively. This will ultimately enable the church to become a more caring community both inside and out, to significantly impact a lost and broken world.

The Daily Guide covers 42 days and leads you through the Paraclesis journey, allowing you to reflect and engage with what you learn each week.

Each day should take about 10-15 minutes to complete and contains key features, including: sermon notes, daily verses, tips, action plans as well as space to journal and reflect on your own thoughts.

Each week, the following themes are explored:

Week 1 - Caring;

Week 2 - Loving;

Week 3 - Journeying;

Week 4 - Living;

Week 5 - Healing;

Week 6 - Connecting.

Over the course of the programme, these themes engage the whole church family in journeying together to be encouraged and equipped to care for one another and their wider community, to stand together and boldly exclaim, 'we care'.
