Safe Place to Do Life
The Chaplain's office provides a safe place to do life. Now that may sound kind of strange to you so let me unpack that just a little bit. Each one of us needs safe places to ask hard questions to go when we hurt or to go when we are full of joy.
We envision that the office of the chaplain can be a place that you'll feel comfortable to send an email or to make a phone call or two or a video and just say you know, here's what I'm dealing with today, would you pray with me and know that that is a safe place for you to live life. That's what I hope to be as your chaplain. I hope that we will nurture an environment or climate for Missional University that will make it an incredibly powerful and effective and
meaningful place to serve the Lord in preparing for our calling.
I was reminded last night of Psalm 89 where the Psalmist makes an incredible promise about who our God is. He says:
Your arm is endowed with power; your hand is strong, your right hand exalted. Righteousness and justice are the foundation of your throne;
love and faithfulness go before you. Blessed are those who have learned to acclaim you, who walk in the light of your presence, Lord. They rejoice in your name all day long; they celebrate your righteousness. For you are their glory and strength, and by your favor you exalt our horn.
Indeed our God is a strong God. Thank you and I look forward to talking with you!
The Office of the University Chaplain provides a “safe place” to do life through authentic personal and group interaction.
