This line at the start caught me:

John Wesley once wrote: “Find out what people need, and then tend to their needs.”

Wilhelm Loehe, a German Lutheran pastor who strongly supported missions in the U.S. and across the world, said something similar: if it isn’t pastoral, it isn’t theology (though come to think of it, he was practically quoting Martin Luther).

The article reminded me of two years I spent at a Lutheran college: even the science professors were ordained pastor/priests, and it showed in the churches in the area where they preached fairly regularly.
