Coffee with the Chaplain

20 July 2019

8:00 AM

Bean Rush Coffee, 1015 Generals Highway, Crownsville

Greetings my fellow compatriots.

Right up front I will let you now that I am not an ordained pastor, priest, or rabbi. However, in June of 1981 when I accepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior and followed him in Believer’s baptism, I was anointed with the authority to spread His Love and His word.  I am far from being a “perfect Christian,” in fact I am a sinner which everyday calls upon his name for forgiveness knowing that my sins were paid for by His blood.

           So, as many through the centuries right up to this day, have been known as “Lay” preachers or ministers, consider me your Lay Chaplain.  I am here to pray with or for you, listen to you, or even just joke around with you…I have always leaned towards the humorous side.

I was an Air Force brat for my first seven years, am myself a military retiree, and now work as a civilian with the Department of the Army.  I am married, yet a geo-bachelor, and we have 5 children.  I have always loved history and have a BA in it.  I enjoy being able to place my ancestors in some of our country’s most pivotal moments.

I hope you will join me at some of my “Coffee with the Chaplain” events, which will be posted on the Chapter website, so that we can get to know one another better.
