Chaplain Norris Burkes

Like a lot of folks, Valentine’s Day isn’t my favorite holiday. As it approaches, I’m still debating how much do I do and how many roses should I buy for 43 years of marriage.

However, my job as a hospice chaplain has taught me that expressing love toward my family and friends is the most important thing any of us can do.

Please send some love to the children of Honduras to help Chispa Project start libraries in their elementary schools. Norris Burkes is a syndicated columnist from Auburn CA. Hear him speak each Sunday at 10:30 in his new pulpit at Community Church Nevada City 300 Main Street. Email Norris at or visit his website to read past columns or purchase his books.
