Lesson 17 - Universal Life Church Chaplaincy Program.

Don't lose site of my own life and personal self care.

Gain a mentor. Someone to guide. And teach me correct me when need be.
Soulfriend a fellow Chaplin of equal years. Someone to lean on talk to identify with.

Active lots of reviews oversite.

Passive leaves most accountability up to the chaplain.

Institution full time / part time placement of chaplins are treated as employees.
Professional org. Seminars group ideals.

Self care
God He is always watching.

I want to be mentored by two women . Rev. Jerri and my 89 yr old minister Rev. Kay
The church is currently moving. The church will be moved next month. I hope to start the mentoring after the move.

Rev Jerri I believe is also Studing to be a Chaplain. Rev Kay was going to retire but changed her mind. Lucky for me.

Master of Chaplaincy Studies Homework

•    Describe someone you know who has the Divine Mark. What set them apart?

I know of a person who has the divine mark, she is incredibly good with others who are in pain, and she has a way of seeing things into the future. She is quite special.  On another front however she is extremely the opposite with some people, those closest to her and it seems almost as if she has the mark of Satan.

•    Has anyone observed the mark in you? Write down what they have said?

People have said that I am the kindest person that they have met, the classes I teach are the best that they have ever taken.  These comments do not come because of what I do but rather the Spirit working in me.

•    Consider your calling. Describe it in a paragraph or two.

My calling is to  bring God to the secular world, the non-believers or barely believing.  I feel that my job is to plant the seeds, to get people to stop and reflect, to LISTEN to God (in the midst of their busy-ness).  Once they have done that then God will take over Himself or by another person that will then take the person to another level.  I am the planter.
