A Pastor’s Heart: Comforting or Challenging?

StGregoryIt goes without saying that the pastor’s heart touches the hearts of the parishioners. What kind of a heart for the people should we have? How should our heart impact their hearts? Should the pastor’s heart be a comforting heart or a challenging heart? The following link addresses the issue in a short article by Daniel McLain Hixon. He shares some insights from The Book of Pastoral Rule by St. Gregory the Great.

I found the article by following a link from The Galli Report, a weekly newsletter from Mark Galli, editor at Christianity Today. He, in turn, provides the link from the weekly newsletter Ministry Matters which reprinted the article from Daniel McLain Hixon’s blog, Gloria Deo . Whew! I wanted to give credit to everyone involved.

This link is from the Ministry Matters web site. “Being ‘Pastoral’” is the title of the article.
