i have no problems...as i have been learning to care for God's precious people, i realize how much that is true. currently i have parishioners with aggressive cancer (and aggressive chemo!), varying degrees of surgeries, loved ones slowly slipping away to Alzheimer's disease, jobs where they are in the line of danger every day, financial woes, job woes, relationship woes, depression....
dealing with such weighty issues continually puts my "issues" into perspective.
as all of these things sunk in i realized afresh how much i need the strength of Christ to even begin to pray for, minister to, be present for these precious people who are experiencing the fire.
