Caring for human beings seems like the best use of my time, homeless or not.

The Drunk Theologian

The Drunk Theologian instructed Father Kim and Pastor Rick.

"There's a reason for everything. We are here to take care of people around us. Everything that happens, there's a reason for it. God knows what He's doing."

Father Kim wondered about that. "Baby born with a hole in her heart?" I wondered about someone driving 80 miles an hour through an intersection and killing a police officer, but didn't say anything.

"Thass right. It's all predetermined. You can't do anything about it."

Not a very satisfying answer, coming from someone who seems bent on marinating his vitals. I could only wonder how many screwed up relationships he was leaving in his drunken wake. Rick
