                                             Reader Agreement

An Agreement between Reader and Chaplain is a description of expectations, it is not a
contract nor a job description. It rests on a recognition of mutuality in ministry and will
emerge from a process of discernment concerning the Reader's gifts and giftedness. Above
all, it must be practical, a picture of the do-able.
