Abstract
Shame contaminates the health and wholeness of all systems and relationships the shamed participates in. Knowing that a pastor will inevitably experience shame, what practices must come into regular church life process for shame resilience to become the norm? Hidden shame experiences and even more shame triggers lurk in pastoral offices everywhere, and so how can pastors become aware of their shame and experience the process of healing? These questions and more will be explored through the areas of vulnerability, empathy and the sacrament of the Eucharist so that pastors may experience shame-lifting and the process of healing from shame, both personally and in their church communities.
