What Is a Chaplain:
In times of grief, distress or disruption it is often helpful to seek out someone who can come alongside with a keenly listening ear and helpful perspectives. The chaplain is such a person. In him you have a confidential, non-judgmental sounding board with whom to share your burden, be guided to find your own answers, and discover where God is in the midst of your journey.


Chaplain Allen’s Personal Themes:

1. You don't have to make the journey alone. (II Corinthians 1:3-4)
2. You can get no closer to God than you are right now. (Ephesians 4:6)
3. God's presence in your life will affect everything you come in contact with as it presents itself in the form of love and service.
4. There is hope in times of spiritual distress.
5. Anything that takes you in the direction of better health is probably within God's will.
6. Prefer nothing to the work of God. (Benedict of Nursia) Note: In its essence the work of God consists of prayer and love.

To heal sometimes, to remedy often, to comfort always.
