I just hope that I won't be too tired/sleepy on the drive home this afternoon.
It's been a good training session. We have a strong corps of UM chaplains. We will have about the same number as the Catholics (20 each). We are the two largest contingents. It does bother me a bit, though, that we do not have all ordained clergy. The folks in-process or who minister under limited authority are great people, and they love the Lord and the Scouts; however, they are not fully formed and trained as clergy, and thus do not look at the world in quite the same way we do, for whom this is our whole calling. We can't prepare them to do everything we'd like to in a two-day training session: they just don't have the background. They'll do well enough in the field, but if I had the choosing we would accept none but fully credentialed ministers for this task.
I'll be home tonight, and then the endless to-do list starts up again.
