CHAPLAIN TO THE MENTALLY ILL.

CHAPLAIN TO THE MENTALLY ILL.

My Dad, the Methodist preacher,

Was an intuitive teacher…

His flock was varied

And not all carried

The ability to get every feature.

He’d use a Bible verse twice,

And both messages would be nice…

‘Bout cedar waxwings

And common things,

Helping to break the ice.

The simplest subjects can reach,

When God’s love one will teach…

His loving way

Finds faith to stay,

Whomever may–for each!
