BOB2: Pastoral Care

2As we wrap up our ninth year of blogging, we are offering a retrospective of the best 20 things that I have most treasured about the blog. Here is #2.

There is no joy in CNN offering breaking news of a tragic event.  As a blogger. it has previously served as a call to action to prepare resources for the field and these resources have proved to be popular as well. Newtown Shooting Resources was ranked #4 all time by the site meter and materials following the Haiti were ranked #7.  Even in the past month, the Patriots’ Day posted attempted to offer perspective and prayer related to the Boston Marathon bombings.

When we are able to respond to the real life situations that are young people are facing. it helps to make the Gospels more relevant to young people as well as allows them to understand how Jesus connects in with these moments.
