Why?

People often ask me what I’m going to do after I become an “official” chaplain.  My response is, “probably work as a hospice chaplain.” Their reaction is typically, “Why would you want to do something like that?  It’s so depressing.”

ImageMy pure and simple answer is:  Because I don’t view “death” as “the end,” but rather life without the hardships and challenges of the physical.

Until one sits with people who are dying and sees them “talking to” their deceased loved ones (whom they claim are present standing by their bedside), or with people who have shared their near-death experiences, one may not be able to comprehend my view of “death” as merely a different dimension of life.

So love fully, work honestly, do good deeds often, and let the Almighty know that you appreciate the blessings He/She’s bestowed upon you in this dimension, so when death comes calling, you will be prepared.
