Our Ordained Chaplains scripture verse for today is Psalms 86:15 which reads, “But thou, O Lord, art a God full of compassion, and gracious, longsuffering, and plenteous in mercy and truth.”

Our Ordained Chaplains quote for today is from C.S. Lewis. He said, “Love is something more stern and splendid than mere kindness.”

In this podcast, we will continue discussing the book “Out of the Depths” by Anton T. Boisen. We continue today with “The Call to the MInistry: Borders of the Promised Land” (Part 5):

I had never before dreamed’ of such a step, for I had never seen in myself the qualifications requisite for that calling. I felt that I had no gift of expression, either in speech or in writing; neither did I have the personal qualities which a minister ought to have. But the idea seemed to carry authority because of the way it came. It also made sense. It meant that just as out of the devotion to my father’s memory I had been led to discover new haunts of the flower that he loved, so now through that same devotion I had tapped anew the eternal sources of religious faith and renewal. It would also permit me to claim a place as a fellow worker with Alice. But still I questioned.
