Y 69 Dealing With Disappointment: Learning From Failure and Being Failed in Christian Ministry


While disappointment—in our ministry, in ourselves, in others or even in God—is part of life, at worst it can cause us to lose hope and our sense of value, and even signal an end to our vocation.

Yet disappointment can also present us with the opportunity to grow, and to discover who we truly are. Using Scripture, poetry, music and visual media, this guide offers reflective exercises and a five-part programme to help anyone in Christian ministry to explore—and find a way through—their own experiences of disappointment.
