Minister in a White Cap

Since Adam went into the hospital on July 20, Becky and I have witnessed on daily his care by the hospital staff. I have always liked the “parable” by Herbert Brokering from a book called “Eye Openers” published by CPH in 1974. To JoAnne Reinhardt and Kathie Rogers and all others in the nursing profession.
Once there was a girl who wanted to be a minister when she grew up. Everyone told her to stop saying it because it was silly, so she did. She became one anyway and didn’t tell people. She washes feet, says the peoples names, tries to get Sundays off, sometimes works all night, and helps the people go to sleep. She can make a bedroom feel like Communion. She is very pretty. When she was ordained, they gave her a white cap.
