Formatted abstract
Important new developments have occurred during the last few decades within practical theology and in particular within pastoral theology. The article illustrates that narrative passages in Scripture can depict the meaning of these newer develop- ments. Images portraying the spiritual life in the Gospel of Luke and in particular the story of Zacchaeus are explored under the headings: background to a pastoral engagement, an eco- hermeneutic approach in a pastorate of narrative engagement, a spiralling pastoral engagement, and stories that fit. The story of a narrative pastoral engagement unfolds in a circular model, integrating paradigmatic-, epistemological- and methodological matters. An eco-hermeneutical approach closely linked to a pastorate of narrative engagement is followed within the desig- nated epistemology. Social constructionism is augmented to become co-constructionism, thus providing for the recognition of truth as revealed in Scripture. Exemplary of this is that in a life-changing metamorphosis, Zacchaeus’ saturated dominant story is replaced by a liberating thickened alternative story.

Belangrike nuwe ontwikkelings het die afgelope dekades binne die praktiese teologie en in besonder die pastorale teologie plaasgevind. Met die veronderstelling dat hierdie ontwikkelings ook deur die Woord ondersteun word, word die betekenis van ’n narratiewe pastorale betrokkenheid op ’n besondere wyse geïllustreer, aan die hand van di e Evangelie van Lukas en in besonder die verhaal van Saggeus. Die betekenis daarvan vir die pastoraat word onder die volgende opskrifte ontgin: agtergrond tot pastorale betrokkenheid, die eko-hermeneutiese benadering in ’n pastoraat van narratiewe betrokkenheid, ’n spiralende pastorale betrokkenheid en verhale wat pas. In ’n hermeneutiese proses word paradigm atiese-, epistemologiese- en metodologiese oorwegings in ’n geïntegreerde sirkulêre model aan die orde gestel. Voortspruitend uit ’n eko-hermeneutiese ontwikkeling in die pastoraat wo rd ’n epistemologie van narratiewe betrokkenheid gevolg. Deur ko-konstruksionisme as verdere aksent in die sosiale konstruksionisme te plaas, word die rol van die Skrif verder beskryf. In ’n voortdurende sirkulêre beweging tussen praktyk en teorie word teoretiese perspektiewe gekaats teen die verhaal van Saggeus.
