unityinduality Posted August 21, 2009 Report Share Posted August 21, 2009 (edited) HiI'm new here. I'm living in the Michiana area now near the boarder of Indiana and Michigan.In 1999 I sold everything I owned so I could move to Orem where I went to Orem Insitute of Religion all day long every day for a year.I received my ecclisiastical endorsement from the LDS church to enter the Army as a Chaplain. The concept of an LDS chaplain is not well known in the LDS church but they do exist. A chaplains job is to minister to all persons in the unit, military, hospital, jail, police station or where every they may be. So regardless of the peoples faith we must minister to them where they are at. I was slated to go into the Army as a chaplain and had the endoresment form the church but I ended up getting a divorce and full custody of my children. So with the responsiblity of raising my children alone I moved near family back in the Michiana area.I wrote a book about the experience calledConfessions of a Mormon Minister: Professionally Qualified as Clergy and Endorsed for the Military Chaplaincy by the LDS ChurchIt is now on Amazon at Amazon.com: Confessions of a Mormon Minister: Professionally Qualified as Clergy and Endorsed for the Military Chaplaincy by the LDS Church (9781448627684): George Blake: BooksI miss being in the Orem Institute of Religion all day every day. It was the most spiritual place I have ever been (other than the temple).My personal web page is George Blake | Niles, Michigan | Author, Writer, Director, ConsultantThanksGeorge Edited August 21, 2009 by unityinduality Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
