A Snippet of History Regarding the Chaplain

“When George Washington assumed command of the Continental Army at Cambridge, Massachusetts, chaplains were already present for duty. Washington could count fifteen chaplains serving with the twenty-three regiments gathered around Boston. The Continental Congress gave the chaplains its official recognition on 29 July l775, when it voted pay for various officers and enlisted personnel in the Continental Army not previously covered in its resolution of l6 July.” Nearly a year later General George Washington issued the following General Order:”

July 9, 1776
The Hon. Continental Congress having been pleased to allow a Chaplain to each Regiment, with the pay of Thirty-three Dollars and one third pr month—The Colonels or commanding officers of each regiment are directed to procure Chaplains accordingly; persons of good Characters and exemplary lives—To see that all inferior officers and soldiers pay them a suitable respect and attend carefully upon religious exercises. The blessing and protection of Heaven are at all times necessary but especially so in times of public distress and danger—The General hopes and trusts that every officer and man will endeavor to live and act as becomes a Christian soldier defending the dearest rights and liberties of his country. Signed, George Washington

Chaplain Rachel,

Thank you for such an insightful post, it was wisdom that I certainly needed to hear. I'm facilitating (assisting) a "Grief Share" group and your words have came to me at just the precise time. I thank you and the Lord for the perfect timing....this makes my day!!

Leaning into the fight

Nothing can prepare you for some of the challenges that life sends your way.  How you respond will change your entire life.  I have always been careful with distance, using it as a barrier to prevent some from getting too close and threatening my security.  Now, I understand that as soon as the trial begins I need to lean in!  It is crucial to get closer to the challenge, you must not shy away from that fight.  The only preparation you have is the knowledge that no matter what happens, this is going to hurt, and most likely leave scars.  Don’t let distance squander your energy.  Lean in, move into the challenge and fight with all the courage, presence and faith you have available.  As I saw the tidal wave of grief coming, I said, “Lord, I don’t know how, but I know You and I know somehow You will bring honor out of this.”  He did then for me, and He will for you now.  He is Enough.  God Needs People Who Don’t Scare Easily.      

Every one of us here today has experienced that tidal wave of grief and the resulting scars.  It is what has prepared us, given us the compassion to serve the way we do.  It was Jesus’s scars that allowed many to believe.  It is our scars that will allow some to believe.  Don’t shy away, lean in, it is worth every life you touch.


Chaplain Rachel Donovan Dec 29, 2017


I Timothy 4:12 – We are to be an example (Tupos – Greek,) A die, a stamp or scar, as defined by Strong’s Greek Concordance. 

Romans 3-5, Suffering (To endure - to bear with patience - to remain firm under,) produces perseverance, (To maintain an effort - not to give in - no compromise.) Perseverance, produces Character, ( A distinctive mark - moral excellence - ethical superiority,) and Character produces Hope, ( Desire combined with expectation.) 

So the scar is similar and included in Character – a distinctive mark.  Accepting the scars of life, walking through the dark places, with the help of faith in God, is the example we need to be to others.
