facesofhealthcare“My illness made me think of my personal vulnerability, but also all of our vulnerability. At the end of my term as Moderator, I actually had a passage from Corinthians 4:7 tattooed onto my back, which reads, ‘We have this treasure in earthen vessels.’
"Our bodies are jars of clay. Our bodies are imperfect. But as Leonard Cohen writes, ‘There is a crack in everything. That’s how the light gets in.’ So that became what I talked with people about when I traveled, and in some ways I think people were more attentive because I became vulnerable. I think of Jack Layton’s last campaign and people said, ‘Oh you know, he shouldn’t use the cane.’ But I think there’s a humanizing experience in encountering one another in a more vulnerable way.” #cancer #healing #spirituality #religion
