His blog, Divinity MD, includes several wonderful  recent posts about his experience as a chaplain intern (he finished a CPE program this year).  We welcome John to the Duke Divinity School community and our readers to the insights of a compassionate, insightful writer.

I read in the Salina Kansas newspaper a St. Petersburg Times article about John Dormois' new career.  I don't know John, but I talked many times with his father on Ham Radio.  Years ago I lived in Wichita and his father called saying that he was visiting his father in the Masonic Home there and would like to stop by and visit.  I warned my wife that an elderly, retired friend was coming.  Soon I heard a car pull up an looked out to see this tanned, slender fellow almost sprint to the door.  After a brief chat, he asked if his father could come in.  Of course.  Up briskly walked our cardiologist's grandfather!  W5SUS left the Ham Radio ranks at age 99 minus a month.  It looks like this second career could be a long and fruitful one.

BTW:  My son-in-law, Ryan Messmore,  received a BS in Public Policy and one in one of the theological studies from Duke and my Daughter Karin a BS in Mathematics and a MAT from Duke.
