Periodically I'll find an article by or about someone in healthcare ministry and recommend it as "a voice of a chaplain." I've found another, and this one in my own back yard. The Rev. Jeremiah Spencer has spent years now in hospital chaplaincy, and I've had the honor to know him personally. He served both a major hospital and a parish; and there were times when I saw him more often in my hospital visiting parishioners than at gatherings of chaplains.
Jerry was profiled this past Sunday in the Kansas City Star. I commend the interview for your reading.
