Do you have a PCS sponsor—to heaven?

[…]Weimer, United States Navy, Retired Military men and women are well acquainted with Permanent Change of Station (PCS) orders that transfer them from one duty station to another across the globe.   And as they will attest to, sponsors are crucial for such reassignments, those advocates welcoming them as they report to a new command by introducing them to command leaders and personnel, and befriending and making them feel at home. But what about the day when we transfer out of this world to that actual permanent change of station ahead on the horizon for every one of us when […]

Finding certainty in an uncertain world

[…]they find friends there? Adding to that list of uncertainties are our contemporary culture’s changes to the make-up of our military.

Your life has spanned the dependable pace of the Cold War, the revved up tempo of the 1990s peacekeeping and stability operations, and now the frenzy of the Global War on Terrorism. More than modernization, your byword is transformation. Each branch of service is undergoing major shifts in organization and culture.

Was it Failure or Success?

[…]a master plan. Failure is a part of living. As leaders, however, we have the ability to serve as change agents–and what agents for change we can be! Having been bounced around from shop to shop, a young NCO once said to me, “At some point, someone has got to give me a chance.” Christ gives us chance after chance to demonstrate faith in His ability to make our lives productive.
