First day at the hospital

Today was my first real day at the Lakeshore General Hospital. I’m still trying to get a grip on what this ministry involves, and I’ve learned that the first thing I need to figure out is some of the bureaucracy. I spent quite a bit of time today just filling out forms, trying to get a parking pass and a badge to open the doors, and taking care of other Human Resources issues. But it is slowly coming together.

Oh yeah, I also visited some sick people! Confidentiality requirements being what they are means that I can’t go into details, but let’s just say that these few encounters are forcing me to go to a new level of pastoral, theological, and spiritual reflection within myself. That is a good thing.

Pray for me!
