You are about to embark upon a journey of discovery that will open your eyes to a whole new world. A world that includes dedicated service, honor, heartache, shattered lives and broken homes. A world of hard work, long hours, and sleepless nights where life and death decisions are around every corner and where strangers judge your every move. You are about to discover the world of law enforcement from a chaplain’s perspective. I love this world and I hope you will too. I’ll introduce you to what the men and women of law enforcement live with day after day and along the way I hope that your respect and understanding of those who serve us grows. Hopefully you’ll gain an understanding of what officers do on a daily basis, the stress they endure, and the price they pay for keeping us safe. So join me as I tell you stories of “The Sheepdogs of Gresham”. We’ll pause here and there and tell stories of travels, adventures, and the stuff of life so, let’s begin.
“The seaman tells stories of winds, the ploughman of bulls; the soldier details his wounds, the shepherd his sheep (dogs).”
