Pastoral Care: It’s Function
People don’t need a long life,
As much as they need a compelling reason to live,
And a compelling reason to die.
For upon these two necessities
Is life for the human being
(in that great array of living things)
Sustained, enabled, and fulfilled.Chaplain Robert W. Cholke
