I was sad to learn that actor Ron Glass died yesterday. I didn't know much about his life or work, but to me, he was an essential element of the TV series 'Firefly', in which he played Shepherd Book, a futuristic version of a pastor. Being a (now-retired) pastor myself, I could empathize with many of his challenges.
Here's one of my favorite (very short) snippets from 'Firefly', in which Ron plays his character to perfection.
I may or may not have applied similar logic from time to time during my brief career as a prison chaplain . . . further deponent sayeth naught!
Thanks for the memories, Mr. Glass. Rest in peace.
