Two Blossoms

Here are eleven chapters of the book on the pastoral ministry I began twenty-five years ago, eight chapters from then, plus three brand new from now. The title has yet to be determined. But I am more and more inclined to using the phrase to which I find myself referring again and again, "The Effective Pastor." As you read through the chapters, perhaps you can come up with a better title. And you can, if you will, suggest to me other aspects of the pastoral ministry not covered in these chapters.
