Ordinarily at my church, someone from a charity comes to speak to us once a month.  We haven’t had this for quite a few months, but we did today.  A woman was telling us about hospice, in which a chaplain ministers to a dying person’s spiritual needs.  I thought about what my spiritual needs would be if I were dying.  I’d probably be happy to talk with someone and to receive inspiration.  But I wouldn’t want a chaplain who would shove conservative Christianity down my throat.

About jamesbradfordpate

My name is James Pate. This blog is about my journey. I read books. I watch movies and TV shows. I go to church. I try to find meaning. And, when I can’t do that, I just talk about stuff that I find interesting. I have degrees in fields of religious studies. I have an M.Phil. in the History of Biblical Interpretation from Hebrew Union College in Cincinnati, Ohio. I also have an M.A. in Hebrew Bible from Jewish Theological Seminary, an M.Div. from Harvard Divinity School, and a B.A. from DePauw University.
