NOTES FROM THE CHAPLAIN

Rev. Raleigh Watson

Unless some of you have “sneaked” in and out of the hospital without my knowing about it (that happens!

we don’t have any new illnesses among the troops. Good! – let’s keep it that way! However, many of our comrades have chronic illnesses or other problems, so I suggest that if you have not seen or heard from one of our members for a while – call and ask how he is doing or if he needs any help. We want our people to know we are concerned about them. If you think our committee might be of help, please let me know! When you receive the “Chapter Chatter,” please look at the sick list and call one of those on it – or perhaps someone you have not seen at a recent meeting. He would appreciate your thinking of him!
