Reader-Submitted Review: Thoughts on Ministering to Someone with Chronic Illness by Sallie Schaaf Borrink


Practical and to the point, this booklet will help church members and leadership better understand and minister to people affected by chronic illness. The first section helps readers understand the social, financial, and spiritual impact of chronic illness on the person and his or her loved ones. Building on this foundation, it offers practical advice about helping with various tasks of daily living, beginning with “Don’t Judge” and “Listen, Listen, Listen.” Available for purchase as a PDF download, the book’s author is a member of Beckwith Hills CRC in Grand Rapids, Mich.
