9781434306302: THE PASTOR WHO LEARNED TO DANCE: How I Learned To Be Myself in the Church

"Neither ascent nor decline. Except for the point, the still point, here would be no dance and there is only the dance." (T. S. Eliot. Four Quartets) The metaphor of the dance is one I have chosen to describe the movement of the Spirit in my life as pastor in a small Protestant congregation in northern California during 1978-88. I dance a light and joyful dance when I remember that God in Christ is the still point of the dance around which the various parts of myself arrange themselves. As the people of God and I dance together we become a healing energy field in which the Holy Spirit powerfully moves . I have written this book in gratitude for the gift of the presence of the Christ as the creator of our dance together with all creation. It is a book for pastors and for students in training for church ministry, but it is for lovers, parents, business executives, and teachers as well. I invite you, my brothers and sisters, to dance with me. From a colleague: Your book is very good; very readable, very insightful and sometimes profound. I appreciate your open (and courageous) description of your personal spiritual journey, also your description of Psychosynthesis and its possible manner of application to one's self and to the activity of the Church. . . . I think . . . that your work could be particularly helpful as a teaching tool for ministers and Seminarians. THE PASTOR WHO LEARNED TO DANCE:HOW I LEARNED TO BE MYSELF IN THE CHURCH byHoward S. Fuller

About the Author:

Howard Fuller, an ordained minister in the United Church of Christ (UCC), was born near Boston and received his theological and pastoral training at Union Theological Seminary, N.Y. C. After ten years as pastor in upstate New York and community organizer in the inner city of Buffalo, he was asked to be a Western representative of the national staff of the UCC. He and his family moved to Berkeley, California where he studied the religion of Protestants and Roman Catholics in the highly secular communities of the 1960s and 70s. He received his Ph.D. in the Sociology of Religion from the State University of New York at Buffalo in 1973. Soon after he was gifted with a transforming spiritual experience that Christ loved him unconditionally. He studied the trans- personal psychology Psychosynthesis for five years and taught its theory and practice to hundreds of Roman Catholic pastors. He was called to be pastor of the Benicia Community Congregational, California, from late 1978 until early 1988. He is also the author of the autobiographical _Treasure Hunting-A Journey towards Intimacy_ (Authorhouse). He was married to Annette for 46 years. They were parents of four children and four grandchildren. She died in 1997. He is now married to Polly P. Gates.
