MILITARY RELIGIOUS
FREEDOM FOUNDATION HONORED TO ANNOUNCE NEW ADVISORY BOARD MEMBER

Retired Director of Pastoral Planning, Catholic Diocese of
San Bernardino, CA and Active Ministry in Marriage Preparation, Archdiocese of Los Angeles, CA

Statement from Ted Furlow About Joining MRFF's Advisory Board:

The major obstacle in joining your group is overcoming my Life Cereal vision of "Mikey".  I totally support your choice of name, but it does put a smile on my face.  That said, I would be pleased to join you in your work in any capacity that you find productive. I share your concerns about extreme religious views, the current politicizing of them, their tribalizing effect, and their egalitarian suppositions of certainty.

"You have to be more inclusive of the individuals you're dealing with and you have to be open to the presence of the Holy Spirit," he says.

[...]

Furlow and his staff have served in a consultative role to many parishes in the Diocese who were seeking to form or strengthen a Pastoral Council. They have also worked with Catholic schools and diocesan ministries to develop strategic plans. He also established a relationship between the Diocese and Mission Insight to provide statistical data on parishes for planning purposes. In recent years, the Department of Planning also coordinated Episcopal Visitations in the Diocese and provided oversight to the newly-formed Office of Transitions.

In addition to his work in Planning, Furlow also served on the Diocesan Curia and Bishop's Senior Staff, where he was known for being well-read and often direct in offering his perspective on the larger issues of the Church. He wrote (and will continue to write) a column in the Inland Catholic BYTE, "The Layman's Minute," and through his narration of Diocesan videos he was humorously referred to as the "voice of the Diocese."
