This past year, I walked the hospital halls as a chaplain for a major hospital in the inner city. I saw brokenness consume families and witnessed grief so overwhelming that it took my breath away. I walked with people as they experienced the most devastating moments of their lives, moments that left them only a fragile shell.
There are times when we confront real devastation and brokenness, times that are so hard that we cannot see the light. But even then, even through the most difficult times, God is still with us.
I have learned that for us mere human beings, simply being present and holding people in their grief is all that is needed.
