Chaplain's Corner
with Reverend Dale Burke
 
It is interesting to me how many folks wander around with their ears dialed in to headsets, ear phones, or blue teeth. I always wonder what kind of music they are listening to, or who they are talking to. If we have something stuck in our ear, we are never alone, and in some small way we are connected to something of value. Being “connected” is important our life and culture.

Our connections give meaning to our lives. The support of family and friends means much to us when we undergo difficult times and feel the pressure of deadlines. Knowing we are not alone can boost us up and give us a sense of renewed strength. We nurture these connections by sharing ourselves in return to keep them vital.

It is also important to be connected to the source of our spiritual life and being. Our relationship with God also needs to be tended to and given attention. Our campus offers many ways to express our belief in God, and in every case our spiritual connection provides great strength, comfort and direction when everything else seems to be falling apart.

When the beeper goes off, we give time to the important people in our lives. So, I hope, do we also answer the “beeper” of a living God who wants to be part of our lives. This, too, is time well spent!
One good way to stay connected is to visit our weekly Chapel service, every Wednesday, noon to 12:30 p.m. at Warmer Auditorium. You just might hear a voice of great importance!
