For Fr. Stephen Joseph Wolf, coffee isn’t quite the sacrament, but it is sacramental. It has a role in ministry – gathering people. There’s a reason that churches have coffee in their lobbies, and for Wolf coffee is “helpful in pastoral counseling situations,” and he often offers coffee whenever he is meeting with someone one-on-one. So, there we sat sharing a sacramental moment at Atmalogy, discussing one of his devotional book’s “31 Day’s of God’s Love-Call.”
Wolf is a parish priest and pastor at the Immaculate Conception Catholic Church in Clarksville, TN. He is also a published poet, and author of numerous meditation and prayer books, one of which is “31 Day’s of God’s Love-Call,” the first in an 8-part devotional series. For Wolf, the Bible is “a very long love letter…and as a whole can be read in this simple message from God: I made you, I know you, and I love you.” Even within the difficult passages and hard-sayings of that letter, he posits that it is possible to find consolation. Watch the interview above for the full story.
