To Support and Encourage with Pastoral Care, Compassion

That's the aim of a new task I took on today.

Police chaplaincy for Hamtramck, MI.

I do solemnly swear that I will support the Constitution of the United States, and the Constitution of Michigan, and that I will faithfully perform the duties of the office of Police Department Chaplain in and for the City of Hamtramck, County of Wayne, according to the best of my ability, so help me God.

With Police Chief Maxwell Garbarino and City Clerk August R. Gitschlag, I said those words to serve in the name of all interfaith clergy who lift up first responders on the front lines in terribly turbulent times.

God help me.
