Pastoral vs Theoretical

Fr. Eugene Lauer had a curious comment during his after dinner comments at Fordham’s Garduate School of Religion and Religious Education dinner.

He mentioned that the National Pastoral Life Center is not really interested in high fallutin theological theories…but rather, they are focused on how to serve people at a basic pastoral level. How do we translate our message to those who simply come to church.

It seems to me, that this is also the work that BustedHalo.com does. We’re translators. We link the riches of theological and spiritual wisdom with everyday life.

If only this could be everyone’s mission.
