I really enjoyed the Who Cares? Course on Zoom. It gave me some great insights into the nature of pastoral care and what that might look like in different contexts, and the interactions with other participants really enriched the experience for me, too. I finished the course with more confidence in my pastoral skills and a deeper understanding of how God calls us to the ministry of caring for one another.
