What role does the Church-as a communicator-play in shaping the moral imagination of society? The question itself poses further questions. What is the Church, as a communicator? How does the Church act as a communicator of morals? What should the Church do to shape morals? Briefly, I will argue that the Church functions as a moral communicator at several levels, that the Church works best as a moral communicator when the Church shapes the imagination, and that such shaping occurs when the Church is most honestly the Church at the local level.
