Crossing Borders In Times of Suffering

Crossing Borders In Times of Suffering

April 20, 2015 | In my work as a Chaplain and Pastoral Educator, I often encounter people in the halls of the hospital looking lost and bewildered. A hospital can feel like a strange and even hostile land to those whose lives have been interrupted with unexpected crisis. It is a self-contained community with a particular language, culture, and set of social norms that can be difficult to navigate for outsiders. Within this world there are structures that can be even more alienating for those who live on the margins of society. As chaplains, we are called to cross the borders that cause persons to feel unseen and unheard in this world of healthcare. Read more »

The Gospel Call to Cross Borders

The Gospel Call to Cross Borders

April 13, 2015 | During my childhood and adolescence I never imagined I could cross a border. This does not mean that I never dreamed of crossing borders.

I enjoyed dreaming that, someday, I will visit as many countries as it was possible. Read more »

The Borders I Cross

April 6, 2015 | I am subbing in an English class at one of the local high schools. A tenth grade boy on the front row is eyeing me suspiciously. Getting eyed suspiciously is nothing new for me, but this guy’s not letting up. His glare is unremitting, almost unblinking. He slouches in his chair as if to get a better view of all 6’2” of me, chews pensively on the eraser of his pencil and stares up as I pace and talk and gesticulate about the importance of verbs. He is definitely skeptical, though I doubt he has heard a word I’ve said about verbs. Read more »
