At one level, this is a book that introduces and explains the Episcopal faith to a potential priest who wants to be effective in this world. At another level, this book is a reflection on the meaning and nature of the holy mystery of priesthood. Drawing upon his rich parish experience in the Episcopal Church, Hawkins distils a wealth of practical experience and tips to enhance the training of seminarians and the ministries of established priests. Hawkins takes the reader through the pastoral offices with theological reflection and vignettes in order to encourage a€œgood priestly habits.a€ Ideal reading for anyone wishing to serve the Episcopal Church in an ordained capacity.In the planning of a funeral, a parish customary can be a very important document. ...
