Army Chaplain Corp

I know I have mentioned this before in military, prayer, chaplaincy… I would love to have been a Chaplain in the U.S. Army Chaplain Corp.  I still think about it… dream about it… and pray about it.  I still have time since the age limit has been moved to 47.  I can’t tell you how many times I think about this each week.

While at work yesterday, I stopped by the front desk and started sifting through the days newspaper.  On the bottom was Section A of the AJC.  On the front page was part 2 of an 8 part series entitled “Chaplain Turner’s War“.  It’s a great story.  I hope you will take a few moments to stay up with this story.  I hope it will encourage you to pray for our Chaplain’s serving in all branches of our military.  They have a tough job with many things they face everyday… literally in the trenches of war. 

If you are so moved to begin praying, I ask you to pray for Maj. Steve Cantrell, Chaplain in the US Army.  I great friend who loves serving God by serving our men and women in the Army. 

For further reading, I highly recommend A Table in the Presence, by Lt Cary Cash.  I was at Southwestern Seminary in Fort Worth with him.  This book tells his story as a Chaplain in the early days of the War in Iraq.
