“One-on-one pastoral care is time-consuming and inefficient.
And yet, proximity is an important factor in pastoral care…
Bearing physical burdens requires presence.
To carry a heavy log or bag a person must be present to hoist it onto his shoulders and bear the burden.
It is no less true for spiritual or emotional burdens – to bear burdens most effectively
you must be present.”
