AbstractThe unfinished Reformation theme of the priesthood of all believers and the current Life of Faith Initiative of the ELCA can both benefit from attention to shepherding souls. Caring for one another includes caring for one’s soul, one’s whole life that includes faith in God. Restricting faith formation and outreach to church professionals and congregational programs is not enough to serve the spiritual wellbeing of followers of Jesus Christ. Part of the priesthood of all believers—as well as a part of shepherding—is the ability to speak the faith out loud. It is as simple as offering a blessing, a prayer or table grace, or simply listening attentively to a person's deeper issues of life that include faith, hope, and love.
