This week I have been privileged to spend time with senior Chaplains of the US Army. Over 350 Chaplains and Chaplain Assistants from around the world are spending time together in Hilton Head, SC to receive updates and various trainings under the theme of Renewing the Soldier’s Mind.
I had the honor to talk on “Renewing the Mind and Keeping It Fit” on Tuesday to the assembled group. My key scripture was Romans 12:1-2. Today, I spoke to spouses on the topic of “Leaning on Your faith in Times of Stress.” Having spent 20 years as an officer in the Army, this was a special time for me to be able to reconnect with members of the Armed Services.
Chaplains in our Armed Services have one of the most challenging vocations in the world. Spending this week with them has certainly given me a greater perspective on the stressors they and their families have.
May God bless the men and women of the US Army Chaplain Corps and the fine enlisted men who support their work.
