Staggering Under Burden of Compassion

Great article from the Los Angeles Times: Staggering Under Burden of Compassion: An Episcopal priest burns out, finds a new approach to faith and writes a book about it.

Favorite response to question in article, "Who does Jesus think you are?"
The answer changes daily. Basically, I'm a middle-aged white woman who's never broken a bone. I'm a child of God on par with anybody sitting on death row. I'm not as wonderful or important as I think I am, nor as wretched.

I may have to write that on every name tag I have to wear! (until I am no longer middle aged!)
