If there’s a “double whammy” of stress in ministry, it’s the military chaplaincy. What a pleasure for us to minister to clergy families who also proudly wear the uniforms of our nation’s armed services. At the invitation of synod’s Ministry to the Armed Forces, Grace Place Wellness offered a four day retreat for chaplains and wives at the Jacksonville Naval Air Station, completing their annual conference cycle begun at our retreat in San Diego in January. Many thanks for this opportunity from the Ministry to the Armed Forces staff, Rev. Craig Muehler and Rev. Steve Hokana. Please remember in your prayers those who proclaim the gospel, both at home and abroad, to the men and women who defend us from our enemies!
