CH-BOLC Day 20 (CIMT)
Had GOOD breakfast this morning - because we were able to "sleep in" until 7:30am! This is when our hotel starts the "real" breakfast buffet! GOOD STUFF!
Although - ended up being a couple minutes late to school because of traffic into Fort Jackson (graduations are on Fridays apparently). This earned about 30 of us a 1-page paper on why it is unethical to be late to class :)
CH Cannon talked from 0830-1030 - on aspects of worship. Anyone heard of the book "Mystery Hotel" ?! Sounds like something Lauren would like reading!
Worship is a verb-active participation; with corporate worship – be aware of your surrounding-where you are standing, etc.; understanding terminology and that not everyone knows the terms/songs/etc. you do.
- Work with the S3 to work in a good time for worship – don’t just take what’s left!
- Be aware of calendar year
We had our first SACRED comm (sermon) today as well - thanks Mayo! I'm a little nervous for my first SACRED comm in a couple weeks - but it will be good to get some useful tips on how to do a good sermon!
During lunch I got a shorter haircut (see pic)!
1300 - CH Wake: son of 30 year Chaplain – writing the doctrine for the Chaplaincy currently - talked about FM 6-22 = Army leadership; FM 105 – Army manual

Went home - tired, but excited for the weekend!
