Paul and spouse Ann contributed to the Wedding Alternatives Supplement. They hosted Rita and I on a speaking tour. Read the notes of that visit at Post #58.


  • Advent resources
  • Personal life: our backyard garden, chickens, bees, community sidewalk garden.
  • Paul’s message series on Gospel.Link – ways of creatively engaging people and faith communities on daily life spirituality, through a bunch of leader and participant resources.  Some have been closely related to simple living.
  • His new set of small group series on the Spirituality of Work, for seven different occupations.  It includes various topics; the last session of each is work/life balance.
  • As a Catholic publisher, The Pastoral Center loves talking about Pope Francis and Catholic social justice documents. Pope Francis has been a big advocate for living more simply and in closer solidarity with the poor — and doing so with joy!  So Paul creates resources to help get that message out. Pope Francis is working on a much anticipated encyclical on ecology. Paul will definitely have resources to help faith communities study and reflect on it once it’s released.
  • Ann and Paul have also become the co-directors of Growing Up Catholic  which reaches out to Catholic families.  This also has a simplicity aspect, encouraging families to re-learn how to have supper together and spend time with each other.
  • Paul also heads up GospelLiving.org.
  • Paul helped Jubilee-Economics.org recover from a serious hack, including The Common Good Podcast, which I co-host and produce.
