Caring Connections: An Inter-Lutheran Journal for Practitioners and Teachers of Pastoral Care and Counseling is written by and for Lutheran practitioners and educators in the fields of pastoral care, counseling, and education. It’s editors are both former members of the NCR: Chuck Weinrich & Don Steiger. Three other present and/or past NCR members serve on the editorial board: Bryn Carlson, Lee Joesten & David McCurdy.
Caring Connections intends to be academically informed, yet readable; solidly grounded in the practice of ministry; and theologically probing. While seeking to promote both breadth and depth of reflection on the theology and practice of ministry in the Lutheran tradition, it also seeks to reach a broad readership, including chaplains, pastoral counselors, seminary faculty and other teachers in academic settings, clinical educators, synod and district leaders, others in specialized ministries, and – not least – concerned congregational pastors and laity.
