Pittsburgh Bishop Zubik Shares His Faith One Uber Ride at a Time

“Without intending to, I have become a user and a fan of the ride-sharing service Uber. It gets me where I need to go, when I need to be there. And it’s also taught me something about faith,” Zubik says in a column in the Pittsburgh Catholic . “It allows me to spend time with kind and caring strangers, and we often speak about God and their faith,” Zubik wrote. “They’re usually the ones who bring it up — usually because they’re surprised to be giving the bishop a ride. Some are very excited and tell me about their church or how God has changed their life. Some rather sheepishly tell me they haven’t been to church in years, and we talk about the reasons why.”
