While friends and strangers alike deal with “having special needs” and “moving into assisted living” and “being on life support” – and I don’t discount the medical details of their situations – the truth is that:
- We all have special needs.
- We all require assisted living.
- We are all on life support.
This, my friends, is why we are the church. We encourage each other in the throes of our special needs. We assist each other. We support each other in this life.
And I believe we get to unite in the life to come as well. Thanks be to God.
