The College of Pastoral Supervision & Psychotherapy is a theologically based covenant community, dedicated to "recovery of the soul" and promoting competency in the clinical pastoral field.
I want to thank you for the hard work you put into publishing Pastoral Report. I am proud that CPSP has lead the way in publishing an on-line journal. It's one more example of CPSP creativity and I want to celebrate this.
It is such a pleasure to read Kathryn Martino's and Barbara McGuire's reflections on the 2007 CPSP Plenary and to read again Jim Gebhart’s challenge to us to expand our concept of supervision towards the larger culture. Jim's comments are timely set against the awful events which have unfolded at Virginia Tech.
And now, most recently, Raymond Lawrence’s penetrating observation that "violence and brutality and unrequited hurt that now permeate our social order." We are once again challenged to be resolved "to be more alert to the profoundly troubled among us, and risk taking action that is both caring and restraining."
Once again CPSP is leading the way.
