Chaplain's List as 1/21/18


Call, send a note, or a visit – A phone call or a visit from a shipmate means a lot, even if you don't know the person.    If anyone knows of a shipmate that should be added, I don’t.  Please let me know.

A reminder, there are many who have recently had or are having scheduled surgery.  In most cases they have asked that I don’t put their names on this list.  Your thoughts and prayers are requested for each of them.

I want to thank those members of the Honor Detail who were able to participate in Dick McGirr’s service this past Friday.  Thank you!!

His family appreciated. 

Binnacle List,

Please say a prayer for all who may also be under the weather including spouses and relatives.  Special note: This should include those who are suffering from some debilitating illness, and may be in a nursing home, etc.  There are many who come to mind that had previously been on this list.

A special prayer for Carl Hostetler, who was taken to L.M. Hospital today. Is status is unknown at time of publishing the broadcast.

God bless.  Jack
