"The idea of 'Clarity and Courage' came to me over time as I watched how other people and I myself handled change. Some people seemed able to embrace what life brought them and move forward. Others seemed stuck and unable to cope. Some, like me, seemed to muddle through.

After exploring options, I was ordained and spent a major portion of my life in congregational ministry. .... This book will be particularly useful if you find yourself: wondering what the future holds, seeking a balance between work and life, wondering how to connect your spirit with your work, feeling you are in a transition period in your life, wondering how you could make a contribution to the world, or looking to discern what God is calling you to do and to be". -- Preface.
