Bill Krulak believes that during key points in his life, he has felt the guiding hand -- and mercy -- of God.During one of his two tours of duty in Vietnam as a Marine Corps infantry officer, he stepped on a land mine. It didn't immediately explode, though, allowing him to leap to safety. The hand of God, he figured.After retiring from the military, his sensitivity to people in crisis and pain led him to discern a call to the seminary and life as an Episcopal priest. Again, the hand of God.Now, he feels that hand nudging him to a church on Roland Avenue: St. David's, a congregation that had been seeking a rector for three years.
