• We are at the end


    “There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity under the heavens.” (Ecc 3:1)

    My involvement with this column began more than 700 weeks ago.  Since then, it has grown to be over 3,500 column inches in length (about the length of a football field).  The Chaplain’s Corner has been a place where we could reminisce of days gone by and lessons learned.

  • Be Faithful


    Daniel’s enemies sought to find ways to harm him because they were jealous of his relationship with the King. God gave Daniel favor in sight of the King. Daniel’s ability and honesty threatened them. 

    The way he gave thanks and petitioned his God was the fault they found. They tricked the king into passing a law forbidding him to pray to his God.  

  • God's Peace


    “And the peace of God, which passeth all understanding, shall keep your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.” Phil.4:7

    There are many robbers of daily peace; bad news and hard circumstances press us from every direction.  Many feel like giving up, but I propose another response. 

  • Don’t Panic


    In Exodus 14, the children of Israel find themselves in a seemingly impossible situation. They were faced with water in front and the Egyptian army behind. As many of us do in a crisis, they panicked.  Yet, God brought them out of slavery and they crossed through the Red Sea on dry land.

  • From darkness to light


    If you’ve never been to Mammoth cave, I encourage you to visit and take the night tour of the cave system. I had that opportunity and was able to travel from the portal to the depths of the cave system and then taken into a room and told to sit down.  The door was shut and the lights were extinguished. 

  • GPS


    Global Positioning Systems have always amazed me.

    An app on my phone allows me to track my wife’s journey to our grandchildren from the time she leaves our house until she reaches theirs — amazing.

    That little app helps her feel more secure knowing I’m aware of where she is, creating a powerful connection.

  • Always there


    An older couple in their pick-up truck came to a four way stop.


    Looking across the intersection they saw a young couple in their car sitting very close together.


    The lady in the truck glanced over at her husband and remarked, "I remember when we rode like that."


    Then the old man, looking back, replied, "I haven't moved!"


  • Keen in mind


    Jeremiah wrote the book of Lamentations in a time of national disaster.


    The city of Jerusalem was destroyed, Israel was defeated, and many people were taken to Babylon. It was a time of great sadness.


  • Resolutions


    A friend tells me that he never makes New Year's Resolutions anymore because he never keeps them.


    I can remember all too many resolutions I've made through the years and never kept. I do however; believe resolutions are worth making.


  • Christmas


    This is the time of year that we celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ. Signs of the season surround us even on occasion a nativity scene on someone's lawn depicting the real meaning of Christmas.
