How We Talk About Things Matters

Dr. Qualls joins me to talk about communication trends in the church. We discuss why pastors should consider how they communicate and how it relates to writing. Without consideration, we run the risk of blindly participating in a form of communication more shaped by consumerism than the gospel.

Show Notes:05. Dr. Joy Qualls — How We Talk About Things Matters: What The Church Communicates

Dr. Qualls may not be a pastor, but she understands every pastor’s challenge. We live in a complicated world which finds itself constantly wrestling with cultural changes, political conflict, and destabilized foundations of religious institutionalism. It’s into this world pastors are called to serve. Dr. Qualls has a word of encouragement and challenge for how pastors engage with the church and community around them.

“How we talk about things matters.” — Dr. Qualls

Our conversation ranges from the definition of rhetoric to the risk of blindly pursuing relevance, from consumerism and transactional religion to the desperate need to be accepted and respected. Along the way, we uncover several intersections of pastoring and writing. Dr. Qualls also shares her own evaluation of the call to write.

“The vocation of pastor(s) has been replaced by the strategies of religious entrepreneurs with business plans.” ― Eugene H. Peterson, The Pastor: A Memoir

It wouldn’t be a trip without books. Most dads have enough sense to bring home toys. But my kids get used books. I found a kids book about a horse named Smokey and the author’s first name was Will. How do you pass that up?
