As a garbage man, I probably know more about the people on my route than their pastor does.
This delightful StoryCorps piece , which is part of the American Pilgrimage Project, features John Marboe in conversation with his daughter Charlie. Marboe is a Lutheran pastor and a garbage man in Minnesota, and father and daughter discuss the connections between these two jobs. You can explore more on John’s blog, Rev. Dr. Garbage Man: Reflections on Being in Garbage.
