Waiting on Both Halves of the Soul: Ministry as Prose and as Poetry

Vincent Rush, of Saint Hugh of Lincoln Roman Catholic Church, observes that the life and work of the minister necessarily involves skills in two domains — the fixed and constant world in which outcomes are definable and more or less subject to control and a contrasting world of allusion, symbol, story, parable, ritual and directionless play where outcomes always come as a gift. He discusses how a period of sabbatical proved essential to re-balancing these two sides of ministry which he calls "the prose and the poetry" of ministry. The work was made possible in part by a grant from the Louisville Institute.
