Title:LOVE’S Reward is JOY and Its Price is PAIN | Steve Kass, Adjunct Theology Professor | Episode #042


Steve Kass is back for his bonus episode of The BeatiDudes.  Steve’s diverse professional career includes 14 years of service as a distinguished Naval Officer, a nuclear submarine design engineer, and work as a university administrator, in addition to nearly 20 years of experience in the deregulated energy industry.  Steve has a master’s degree in Systematic Theology from Seton Hall University, a master’s degree in Nuclear Engineering from North Carolina State University, and a bachelor’s degree in Geology from the University of Rochester in New York.

In addition to his work at the national energy advisory firm 5, Steve is an Adjunct Professor of Theology at Seton Hall University and serves his community as a member of his church’s parish council and as the Vice Chairman of the Board for Chilton Medical Center in New Jersey.

The show starts with Blessed are the Joke Makers Bonus Edition, in which each Dude must take on a different persona to address the prompt, “I got seven deadly sins, but ____ ain’t one.”

After the game, Steve dives into a reflection on his relationship with his family as an only child with no aunts or uncles. Steve tells touching stories of both of his parents’ deaths and the role that faith played throughout the journey.  

As his father was taking his final breaths, Steve stepped in to baptize him in the name of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit.

As Steve states in the show, “Love’s great gift is joy, but the price is the pain of separation.”
