img_5903“One of my favorite words for PASTOR is curate.  The term is unfamiliar to many of us.  But the word “curate” signifies a person who partners with God for the “cure of the soul” or, in Dallas Willard’s words, the “renovation of the heart”.  Mentors, spiritual directors, spiritual friends, parents, teachers, pastors and disciplers are called to take a risk on God as they accompany people in the Spirit’s soul-curing work.” – Adele Calhoun, p. 265, The Spiritual Disciplines Handbook – Practices that Transform Us.
