"Just a Parish Priest" - Sightings (Martin Marty)
Father Michael Pfleger's name came up a few years ago as one who influenced Barack Obama back in his community organizing days. Martin Marty takes not of Pfleger and his ministry on Chicago's south side at St. Sabina's, a congregation that is celebrating 100 years, and that was on the verge of collapse when Pfleger arrived. Now it is thriving, in large part because it is ministering to its community. Take a read and consider his example.
