Abstract
This project explores the church's nature and mission as it encounters human beings moving through life's transitions--sociological and relational, economic, physical health, crisis and tragedy, and chronological. Based on studies of the Constitution of the Presbyterian Church (USA) and the theologies of John Calvin, Gustaf Aulen, Elaine Ramshaw, John Leith, and Howard Roberts, the project uses case studies to illustrate the church's response to human transitions. The project defines "salvific nurture" and "sanctification" as they relate to pastoral care of people in transition.
