Dulles Airport Chaplain Ralph Benson walks the halls of the airport every day in search of travelers who need some guidance, and they're easy to find.

Maureen Fiedler, host of Interfaith Voices, asked the chaplain what makes the people he serves at the airport different from those in a normal congregation. Last year, nearly 7,000 travelers sought pastoral counseling at Dulles and Reagan National Airport.

For more of Chaplain Benson's story, tune in to Interfaith Voices this Sunday afternoon at 3 p.m. on WAMU 88.5 FM.
