Chaplain's Corner
with Reverend Dale Burke
 
One of the great life lessons taught me as a young person was to always put your best foot forward no matter what you were doing. I didn’t always follow that advice, but anyone in my classes know that is a mantra I use to inspire us to offer our best to the world in everything we do. The rewards are tremendous, especially as we offer our best in the “little” things of life.

Local author, Kent Keith, in his book, Anyway, shares the secret of living a life with meaning.

“ People are often unreasonable, illogical, self-centered: Forgive them anyway.

If you are kind, people may accuse you of selfish, ulterior motives: Be kind anyway.

If you are successful, you will win some false friends and some true enemies: Succeed anyway.
If you are honest and frank, people may cheat you: Be honest anyway.

What you spend years building, someone may destroy overnight: Build anyway.

If you find happiness and serenity, others may be jealous: Be happy anyway.

The good you do today, people will often forget tomorrow: Do good anyway.

Give the world the best you have, and it may never be enough: Give the world the best you’ve got anyway.

You see, in the final analysis, it is between you and God: It was never about them anyway.”

After the shootings at Virginia Tech, many of you signed a giant posterwith notes of condolences and prayers, which we sent to them. We recently received a note from their administrators thanking us for our thoughts and for standing with them. Thanks to all of you who participated. Little things do make a big difference!
