Our Ordained Chaplains scripture verse for today is Zechariah 7:9 which reads, “Thus speaketh the LORD of hosts, saying, Execute true judgment, and shew mercy and compassions every man to his brother.”

Our Ordained Chaplains quote for today is from Henry Drummond. He said, “You will find as you look back upon your life that the moments when you have truly lived are the moments when you have done things in the spirit of love.”

In this podcast, we will continue discussing the book “Out of the Depths” by Anton T. Boisen. We continue today with “The Call to the MInistry: Borders of the Promised Land” (Part 7):

This sermon had the effect of driving me nearly psychotic. I cannot remember what followed. I do know that I wrote to Alice, telling her of my steady purpose to enter the ministry and of the great perplexity in which I found myself by reason of my failure to stand the test two years before. This letter may have come to her at an opportune time. I have never been sure, but at least it has been my impression that she had been a Student Volunteer and that shortly before my letter came she had received word of her rejection for foreign service because of her health. However that may be, she now consented to see me.
