A small-town pastor has no choice but to pursue a theology of daily life — of endless potlucks and coffee shop discussions and late-night prayers in some dark hospital room. Several years ago, in a conversation with Marilynne Robinson, I asked her about such a life. I inquired whether her protagonist, Rev. Ames, wasn’t kind of “stuck” in Gilead, if his intellectual gifts weren’t somewhat wasted in such a small town. Her response: “There isn’t any necessary relation between the scope of one’s mind and where they live. Ames is highly educated. He knows what books to read, he knows what’s going on in the world, and thus is intellectually sophisticated. A life lived well is never wasted no matter what the scale of that life is. He lives toward God. And there is no way of measuring that.
