This one-of-a-kind publication brings together the insight and expertise of many chaplains who have been leaders in the U.S. Armed Forces and Veteran Affairs Chaplain Service. The Military Chaplains Association is pleased to publish this work as a digital resource to help mentor those who now serve as chaplains and those who are preparing themselves for service in this unique calling. Chapters are written by senior chaplains . This book addresses the core ministry roles and functions of chaplains, such as, pastoral ministry, preaching, diversity, public prayer, staff officer duties, ethical leadership, priestly functions, servant leadership, family ministry, caregiver, encourager, soldier, and provider of the free exercise of religion.
Taken from Foreword: Chaplaincy is a unique vocation--it is a call within a calling. Distinctive as it is, balancing one's call from "God" with one's call to serve our nation is a distinction that is shaped more clearly by understanding the multi-dimensional shape of military chaplaincy. Vignettes - Perspectives - Clues - Insights - Guidance - "If I had to do it all over again" reflections are shared in this collage of collegial concepts. Thus, VOICES OF CHAPLAINCY is a unique compendium of counsel from decades of chaplain leadership. Our grateful thanks to all who have shared their wisdom. It is MCA's contribution to your calling - "CHAPLAIN."
