Final thought

I continue to be amazed by the wonderful work that chaplains are doing at this time, even in such difficult circumstances. But I'm also aware of those chaplains who are unable to do much because of the restrictions placed upon our lives at this time - and the feelings of guilt or frustration they carry. So at this time, I want to remind you that your worth is not found in what you 'do'. 

Chaplains will be the first to tell others they are loved by God regardless, and so, let me tell you, that whatever you're doing, whether it be carrying on as near to normal, whether it's spending time praying for those you serve, or whether you find yourself struggling to be what you think you should be, you are dearly loved by God. Don't forget that.

Whatever your ministry looks like at the moment, you are welcome to be with us at any of our events. Let's continue to pray and hold each other in love. 

Every blessing,
Gary Hopkins
