Our Ordained Chaplains scripture verse for today is Lamentations 3:32 which reads, “But though he cause grief, yet will he have compassion according to the multitude of his mercies.”

Our Ordained Chaplains quote for today is from D.L. Moody. He said, “If we do not love one another, we certainly shall not have much power with God in prayer..”

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 6):

With the close of the school year in 1905 I entered the Forest Service. For a full year I served with my chief of the previous summer in a forest survey of the state of New Hampshire. Following that I was assigned to the making of a working plan for the Henry’s Lake National Forest just west of Yellowstone Park. I was then transferred to the Office of Silvics under Raphael Zon, the Forest Service’s outstanding scientist, and assigned to the task of studying the commercial hickories. All of these assignments were full of interest, and in between each one came a sojourn in Washington, where under Chief Forester Gifford Pinchot and President Theodore Roosevelt, the Forest Service was going forward by leaps and bounds, and the conservation movement was getting under way.
