A snippet of history pertaining to 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

Comment by Ronald Jones on June 21, 2015 at 6:10am

As a pastor I learned early on that Fathers Day was an excellent time to remind all men none of us made it here without a father, for better or worse. For the men who had remained single I reminded them that they still occupied a fathers role to many they may have never imagined. They were uncles, brothers, mentors, respected, the go to guy; they often filled a fatherly role to many because of their character. All men received a gift (via my wonderful wife) for the roles they played. Every man has the opportunity each day to be a positive father figure to those who look to them for guidance and mentoring. So to all the men remember first and foremost we have a loving Heavenly Father, you may be awaiting your first child, you may not be a father in the traditional sense, or like me your father has went to be with the Lord, but you are still able to provide that which is so desperately needed in our society today, a father to the fatherless. For me it is the blessing of interacting with two children living next door who are being raised by their mother and have visitation with their father. My grandchildren are with us each day and we include our neighbors children in the daily playing and I take time to answer the familiar question, "what's you doing Mr. Ron." It's not a pat on my back but merely an example of the difference we as men can make in others lives. God bless all the men who provide fatherly character and integrity to others. CH Ron
