Giving and living mercy

  1. Rev. Steven W Bohler says:

    A parishioner came to me troubled by the “Specialized Pastoral Ministry” section featuring a woman chaplain. This parishioner was wondering why a woman was doing pastoral ministry. While I understand that the chaplain is not a pastor, I also understand my parishioner’s confusion over the rather misleading title of “Specialized Pastoral Ministry”: both “pastor” and “minister” are suggested by that title. Couldn’t we find something a little less confusing?
