Chaplains are spiritual representatives of Christ commissioned to work in mostly secular institutions. We are expected to serve both the spiritual and emotional needs of others through listening, prayer, Scripture reading, and being God’s hands and feet in the organization we are privileged to serve in. This podcast is designed to equip chaplains and those training to be chaplains with the resources and encouragement they need to carry out their calling in life.

Our Ordained Chaplains Scripture Verse for today is James 1:27 which reads, “Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.”

Our Ordained Chaplains quote for today is from Diane Johnson. She said, “A chaplain’s biggest gift is to be present and just listen.”

In this podcast, we will continue discussing the book “Out of the Depths” by Anton T. Boisen. We continue today with “Chapter 4: A Little-Known Country” (Part 3):

As of 1923, I was copying the letters given me by Dr. Worcester and trying to record what I could remember of the experience I had been through. In that effort I had the benefit of memories which were still vivid. I had also before me the Statement of Experience written at the time of onset. This in turn drew upon the Statement of Experience written in 1911 for presentation at the Brooklyn Presbytery, and this again in turn drew upon a record, now lost, which went back to Washington in 1908 and to the Easter experience of 1898. The continuity of these experiences may probably be assumed.
