Leadership by Example

[…]exercises within the mind and the soul. I have learned over the years that the best way to address them is to work on what you can know about yourself and your preparations, rather than on what you cannot know. Soldiers cannot predict in advance their performance in battle, but in a very clearheaded way, informed by the experiences of the millions who have gone before, they can focus on who they must be, and from that character what they must be able to do, to be successful in combat, to meet the officers’ obligations as warriors, as servants, as […]

Support Your Chaplain

[…]Paul Roush, USMC (Ret.). We soon realized we need an updated approach that will recognize and address the changes taking place in our more expeditionary military and in our chaplaincies. One suggestion to answer the question “How can OCF members support chaplains?” was, “Ask a chaplain!” We believe there is wisdom and truth in that approach. So this document is authored by a Navy chaplain, Captain Bill Weimer. It is written from the perspective of a chaplain and an OCF member, but it also expresses the ministry philosophy of OCF. It is axiomatic that OCF cannot accomplish its purpose and […]

Reignited Service

[…]alarm, or dread? Whatever your definition, that is the side of 2 Timothy 1:7 you need to address. My synonym for fear is anxious. I think I fear little, but I admit that I can get anxious about a thing or two. As recently as yesterday, I became anxious over an issue. Then I read 2 Timothy 1:1-14 for a full appreciation of Paul’s response to Timothy’s fear. Paul acknowledged that Timothy’s “sincere faith” (verse 5) was in need of a fresh rekindling (verse 6). God reminded me that dwelling within me is the antidote to fear, which is trust. […]

Finding certainty in an uncertain world

[…]heart and mind all play out in OCF through our eight Spiritual Pillars. Pillars four and five address our key principles of being a “lay-led” ministry where “integrating faith and profession” is exhorted to our members. I believe the ability to shine the light of Christ effectively in the most difficult of our military careers’ situations depends upon how well we live out God’s instructions through Paul’s letter to the Philippians. We live in a hurting world of people desperate for answers. As a Christian, you already have the answer—Christ in your heart. If you have successfully guarded your face, […]
