It is interesting. I recently had an opportunity to meet gentleman, who served as ‘Chaplain’ for a cancer treatment ward of a major Los Angeles hospital. He told me that he provided spiritual counsel too many people from many different faith traditions and from every economic strata…filthy rich to filthy poor. After further talking, we found each other interesting enough to sit down for a brief chat, which quickly turned into a most engaging conversation about ‘Life Economics’.
As we talked, the chaplain looked out of the window toward the Hollywood hills and referred to the disease of cancer as ‘the great common denominator’… bringing people, those who lived at the top of hill and those who lived at the bottom of it, together on one accord. I thought that was an interesting observation and listened on.
