Father Paul Massey's picture

Pastors get the most interesting questions from people in their congregations and people they meet. Here are a few that I have gotten over the years and via email for this column.

Dear Father Paul: A very close friend of mine is a very dedicated vegetarian. She often urges me to adopt this eating style, but I love a good hamburger or steak. Does the Bible speak to this question? — No Name Please

Dear Friend: Whether or not we should or should not eat meat is not a moral or religious issue for Christians. The Bible does not specifically endorse or forbid one or the other. Read More»

Running is good stress relief, and I find it a good outlet for a pastor. I’m getting exercise, staying fit, burning calories and praying all at once. In addition, I enter a 5K or 10K every now and then for the thrill of competition. Read More»
