I’ve been called to serve as a chaplain in a wonderful organization called Midwest Palliative and Hospice CareCenter. And I have now been ordained in the United Church of Christ. This means a 30-year journey toward this moment has culminated in a new and chosen path.
This coming May it will have been a year since I graduated from Chicago Theological Seminary with my master of divinity degree: a lifelong dream that is coupled with an equally long-incubated desire to be a minister. My efforts to launch my vocational life are slow in the midst of my responsibilities for our sweet little two-year-old daughter, but I will get there!
