One of our family's favorite books to read aloud is the classic children's tale, Caps for Sale, by Esphyr Slobodkina. I loved the story when I was a child. Now I love holding my children in my lap as I read the story with an affected Slavic accent. In the story, a cap salesman carries his wares on his head. One day, having little success at sales, the peddler sits down under a tree to take a nap. When he awakens he discovers that monkeys have absconded with his caps and are teasing him with them from up in the tree under which the peddler had slept. He stomps his foot and says, "You monkeys, you. Give me back my caps!" Caps. Hats. "Wearing many hats" is an idiom for having many jobs. I wrote this book at the midpoint of a career in which I have worn many caps. During seminary I served two different churches as a youth minister; I also worked as aide at a psychiatric hospital, and I was a reporter for a denominational state news journal. When I left seminary, I spent one year as a chaplain in an intensive Clinical Pastoral Education hospital residency. After my residency, I became associate pastor for youth and young adults at a church where I served for eight years. During that time, I also entered an internship at a counseling center where I became a licensed marriage and family therapist. I also began taking classes toward a Ph.D. in human ecology, majoring in child and family studies with a cognate in counseling. After eight years, I left the church to go to school full time and finish that degree. While working full time on my courses and dissertation, I served as a graduate teaching assistant at the university and as an interim contemporary preacher at a church. After finishing my degree, I took a position as a family therapist at a non-denominational faith-based counseling center

Book Description Paperback. Condition: New. 248 pages. Im not reading any more of this manuscript. This book could cause you to lose your job at a school like the one where you just lost your job. --Retired seminary professor (name withheld)I know all the books out there about ministry. There are lots of deductive texts, but I dont know of any as inductive as this. We need this book. If your intent was to create a collection of literary essays that could be used as a text on ministry AND be entertaining to a traveler on an airplane, you succeeded --Retired seminary professor, Dr. Harold BrysonOne of our familys favorite books to read aloud is the classic childrens tale, Caps for Sale, by Esphyr Slobodkina. I loved the story when I was a child. Now I love holding my children in my lap as I read the story with an affected Slavic accent. In the story, a cap salesman carries his wares on his head. One day, having little success at sales, the peddler sits down under a tree to take a nap. When he awakens he discovers that monkeys have absconded with his caps and are teasing him with them from up in the tree under which the peddler had slept. He stomps his foot and says, You monkeys, you. Give me back my caps!Caps. Hats. Wearing many hats is an idiom for having many jobs. I wrote this book at the midpoint of a career in which I have worn many caps. During seminary I served two different churches as a youth minister; I also worked as aide at a psychiatric hospital, and I was a reporter for a denominational state news journal. When I left seminary, I spent one year as a chaplain in an intensive Clinical Pastoral Education hospital residency. After my residency, I became associate pastor for youth and young adults at a church where I served for eight years. During that time, I also entered an internship at a counseling center where I became a licensed marriage and family therapist. I also began taking classes toward a Ph. D. in human ecology, majoring in child and family studies with a cognate in counseling. After eight years, I left the church to go to school full time and finish that degree. While working full time on my courses and dissertation, I served as a graduate teaching assistant at the university and as an interim contemporary preacher at a church. After finishing my degree, I took a position as a family therapist at a non-denominational faith-based counseling center. I left that to take a position teaching undergraduate psychology and then on to graduate counseling. So, I have worn a lot of hats: chaplain, church minister, writer, teacher, counselor. Many times these roles have overlapped. But a common denominator in wearing all these hats is that, like the peddler, my hats often have been threatened by monkeysexternal to me and within myselfcrises and conflicts that seemed to threaten either me, my job, my coworkers, my hospital patients, my congregation members, or my clients. But then there have been the times when, as with the peddler, the hats came drifting back down and, with relief, I stacked them and started over again. When I was a child I used to watch a police drama on TV. At the beginning the narrator said, The story you are about to hear is true. The names have been changed to protect the innocent. If it is important to protect the innocent in criminal cases, it is even more important to protect everyone in matters of such personal confidence as faith and health. In this book I have changed not only names but sometimes contexts and the subjects genders. I often have created composite characters, while staying completely true to the essence of the events. In his book People of the Lie, psychiatrist Scott Peck says that if friends and colleagues reading the book think they know the people about whom he has written, they are mistaken. The same is true of this book. My wife has read all these stories and tried to guess the identities of the people inv This item ships from multiple locations.
