a-competitive-edgeI remember one of my first battalion XO’s jokingly ask me, “are you ready to compete with the staff?”  I thought to myself “this is a trap!”  I mean, the staff was decorated, smart, and well-liked.  And althrough I am a competitive person, I simply said “Sir, if I compete with the staff, I’ll lose…but if I compete with the world I like my chances.”  Bottom line, Chaplains and Ministers impact more than a shop, staff, or church.  We impact entire organizations, its family members, the communities where we serve, and the World in which we serve in.  Don’t worry about who is to your right, left, and where an ‘x’ mark goes on a piece of paper.  Stay connected to your higher power and use your ministerial gifts to change lives and change the world…
