Attached is a short article I posted on our Counseling Center website. Since I teach both missions classes, and a number of pastoral care topics, I love topics that overlap. I saw that the 7 rules of Interreligious Dialogue (IRD) had some interesting correspondences to good guidelines for a Pastoral Conversation, so I played around with it a bit. You are welcome to click on it and decide whether it is of value or not.
