Sr. Karen Pourby talks to an employee at Heilman Auto Repair about one of the congregational cars.
In addition to car-related activities, Sr. Karen also assists with medial insurance matters and budgeting. She finds everyday a new adventure, especially with the ever-changing insurance companies. And in spite of challenges, she feels blessed in this “different” position. “I’ve gotten to know many of the sisters and I do my best to meet their needs. I’ve learned a lot and truly appreciate my coworkers. And I’ve learned patience—realizing that I have to be on an even keel to deal with everyday situations.”
Sr. Karen’s life experiences—her willingness to journey into the “unknown,” her ability to cope with challenge, and her wonderful sense of humor—all, I assume, do much to maintain that sense of living on an even keel. They also, without a doubt, reflect the Franciscan heart that “drives” her life!
