Super Informative and Interesting
As an aspiring chaplain, this podcast is incredibly helpful in giving me insight into the issues and conversations of chaplaincy in the military today. I love hearing chaplains who are currently doing this work discussing the ways that we can care for the men and women of our armed forces in today’s world.
A great way to stay connected across our corps for information and insight - and in a format that fits into the pace of life and ministry. Thank you!
Love this new tool for mentor ship and communication. Keep up the great work!!
