The end of Christendom creates a dystopian effect on those trained to pastor in an era where success was measured by buildings, bucks, and butts. Doubling down on the pragmatics of popular leadership principles or following the allure of better marketing only increases the dissonance.
We need to rediscover the translatability of the Good News by re-visiting the way theology intersects the role or work of pastor(ing). /patheological/ is a podcast for those who pastor, those whose work in the church is pastoral, and those thinking about engaging the world as it is and may be theologically.
