Description

By Phyu, Nant Elizabeth Ei Huin, 2019 -- "Clergy hold a place of honor in society in Myanmar’s local context. Clergy are the role models for spiritual figures and congregations have high expectations for them. However, the wellbeing of clergy serving in Myanmar is not a priority in the Church and clergy do not pay attention to how to do self-care for them. For this reason, this capstone project explores the importance of self-care for clergy by developing a rule of life in Myanmar’s local context from theological, spiritual and contextual perspectives. The intended audiences are clergy who are serving in ministry in Anglican churches in Myanmar as well as seminarians who are preparing to serve in ministry. The guideline of how to develop a rule of life will be a resource for clergy serving in Myanmar that addresses the importance of self-care in doing ministry. " -- Abstract
