Pastoral Identity

This article will continue with an exploration of the path toward self-discovery and realization of who you are and whose you are.

How War Changes Pastoral Identity – Michael Jaques

The path toward self-discovery can lead to the realization of who you are and whose you are. Every single person, no matter what sphere of work they belong to, face some kind of identity crisis, and pastors are no exception. 

Constructs that Influence Chaplains in the War – Michael Jaques

Moving on, we will now speak of the core category and the four prime constructs that constitute the emergent theory. The first construct termed “I am Powerless” confirms the idea that Army Chaplains witness a phase where they feel extremely distressed due to the feeling of powerlessness that prevails over them. This mostly happens during the stage where they try and fix the problems of the soldiers during deployment. The second construct inspects the idea that part of the distress felt by the chaplains is a result of their longing to be Godlike or all-powerful. This is termed as “I am God”. The third construct called “God’s Providence” that the ultimate control lies in the hands of God and has a planned purpose for everything that takes place around us. The fourth construct of the emergent theory is called “How I Cope” and provides a description of the ways in which the chaplains try and deal with the sense of powerlessness. It also acts as a vehicle for the chaplains to proceed to the final stage of the theory and the ultimate central category called “I am Changed”. 

Feeling of Powerlessness in War – Michael Jaques

War is one of the most unsettling and painful experiences
for people who witness the wrath of it. Thousands of lives are lost, and homes
are shattered. Soldiers and their families are the worst affected. However,
people are often unaware of the fact that hundreds of army chaplains, who are
meant to provide religious aid and solace to these brave hearts, are also a
part of this struggle. Like the soldiers, they too, witness the ravages and
bear the brunt of war. There are situations when they look at the destruction
around and feel helpless. They are engulfed by the feeling of powerlessness and
fight a long battle with themselves to come out of it. But what exactly is the
feeling of powerlessness?
