Today at lunch, I went with my Rector to deliver Communion to someone who seems near the end of life's journey. The experience has affected me this afternoon on many levels. I am humbled to serve, sad for the man I visited, and facing a renewed consciousness of what in life is truly important.

Things like "Obamacare" debates, and union and,political sniping over email are not high on this list. Helping people like this man, the people I see as a Chaplain and the people in Haiti, and in our city are. I confess I lost patience with the email today.

Tonight I serve as on-call Chaplain for the first time in several weeks. I am prepared to be humbled some more if my pager sounds.
