CHAPLAIN'S CORNER - A Pastoral Care Resource Room Exclusive For NewsTalkers

A new and exclusive to NewsTalkers community resource room for pastoral care is now open to all NewsTalkers members and visitors.

Those seeking ideas, techniques, and experiences with providing and receiving pastoral care can find it in CHAPLAIN'S CORNER.

The room is co-run equally by Enoch and Raven Wing. All are welcome to read articles. Those wishing to post comments should read the rules in RED.

Contributions violating site and room rules will be deleted for cause by either Enoch or Raven Wing.

The room is a place to find pastoral care for those seeking and/or wanting to provide it. It is a resource for help. It is not a debating society on doctrine, viewpoints etc.  

Anyone wishing to have an original article or seed posted should send it by site private notes to both Enoch and Raven Wing for consideration.

If the proposed monograph fits the room theme we will post and support it. If it does not, it may have great value elsewhere on the site. We shall so advise and entice submitters to post it in another venue, wishing you well with it.

Our profound gratitude goes out to TIG and Perrie Halpern for all the effective work they did to make this library for our community possible. Thank you.

Peace, Abundant Blessings; Giving and Getting Help When Needed As Wanted.

Enoch and Raven Wing.

Dear Friend No Where Man: Frost bite can occur very rapidly in such temps.

For the next few days, shy an emergency situation I plan to enjoy the great indoors.

15 November last I had open heart surgery.

This winter shoveling the drive and walkway has been farmed out to folks younger then me.

Fortunately, that is almost all the population on this globe.

Nice to see the shop doors have opened.  Congratulations to you both.

The Chaplain's Corner is an excellent example of how to leverage the power of groups on NT.   I am sure the other major group owners will be here to welcome you to the fold as the newest major NT group.

Dear Brother Enoch,

I have had the honor and pleasure of working with TiG as an NT Beta Tester (BT) on some of the new features he has developed over the past year or so, and he is a wonderful teacher, and the patience of Job with my many questions as things progressed. I am sure that the two of you would work very well together. (smile)

This site, as our resource to this site room owes TiG big time. Big Time!

I look forward to working with TiG in whatever ways the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune send our way.

Good times ahead, full steam.

As I have certain limited Moderator powers for specific purposes and duties, I can become a member of all non-private groups and can open and post to the ones I choose without requiring to click on "JOIN GROUP", so please consider me an interested member although I will not show up on your member list.  I wish to welcome you, Enoch to the frustrating life of a group administrator.  Raven Wing has already borne the tribulations of being one. 

 
 
 
Raven Wing
11.1  Raven Wing  replied to  Buzz of the Orient @11    8 months ago

Welcome Buzz! The Chaplain's Corner is no longer a private group, that was only while it was under construction. Since it has now gone live it is now an open group for any who wish to join, or just to come and visit and read the many articles. Chaplain's Corner is meant to be sort of a Library of various Pastoral articles that all are welcome to come and read. And if anyone wishes to add an article that is appropriate for the group they are welcome to submit a copy of their article to both Enoch and myself via the NT Private Notes for consideration.   

Raven Wing has already borne the tribulations of being one.

While there are always some types of issues that can arise when administering any kind of group, I do take great pleasure in doing so. Most visitors are more than willing to offer many interesting, enjoyable and enlightening comments. 

I will also be the Moderator of the new group and assist Enoch however I can while he is still recovering from his recent surgery. 

If you would like to submit any articles that are related to the Chaplain's Corner we would be happy to hear from you. (smile)

 
 
 
Enoch
11.2  author  Enoch  replied to  Buzz of the Orient @11    8 months ago

Dear Brother Buzz: As "Mein Besten Chaver" you serve as a role model for me in how to do this.

The room is really a library resource center for ideas and articles.

Not much in the way of give and take back and forth expected.

We want those who need to have a pastoral care needs a safe place where they can come and obtain, hassle free.

A "Succat Schlomecha" (Peaceful dwelling).

With Sister Raven Wing as my co-equal don't see how I can go wrong.

Cannot actualize its full potential without you.

Totally agree on getting credit to TiG for all he does for this site.

Talk about an unsung hero!

While we are on the topic, a huge shout out to the site Moderators.

They take on a thankless job, never get credit.

Just a bunch of guff from those who break the site and room rules and get caught.

So many do so much, and are praised so little.

This is one of the many reasons why we need you as a member.

To be the site conscience.

Peace and Abundant Blessings Always.

Indeed! It has been my very great pleasure to work with TiG on various occasions here on NT. Our Chaplain's Corner is a testament to his abilities and hard work. There was a lot of hard work on his part to create the Migration function so that we could easily transfer all the articles from their previous location to the Chaplain's Corner as opposed to copy/paste, which would take much longer and more editing. 

The new Migration feature not only provided a fast and easy way to transfer our articles, but, will also help others here on NT who wish/ned to do the same.

TiG is truly an valuable Member of the NT site, and a very dear Friend. (smile)

Dear Brother and Close Friend Dave: Mrs. E. and I devote Saturday nights when we have no company, and are home setting aside "just us" time with a good Netflix movie following a candle light dinner.

In the early 1970's we started a s a couple.

Over the years we became a family.

Now, as the journey comes full circle we are once more free to be a couple again.

We both just move slower.

The room is a site and community resource.

We endeavor to address topics of universal experience and import.

Issues such as birth, life, death; wellness and illness, prosperity and thin economic times, marriage, divorce, success and failure etc. 

The province of pastoral care is people being there for other people when and as needed and wanted.

You are always welcome to come visit.

Look up items of interest and relevance as you journey life.

Use information for yourself, and for us with others.

Grace us with your wisdom and humanity, as expressed through your posts. 

If you wish to write an original article you want posted here, please site private note it to Raven Wing and me.

You are important to us.

Both here in this room, and site wide. 

Important, respected and valued.  

Peace and Abundant Blessings Always.

Enoch.

18.1.1  dave-2693993  replied to  Enoch @18.1    7 months ago

Thank you Enoch,

Enjoyed your experiences. Agree, a good movie to share after a nice romantic meal is a good formula.

Well we got through half of the movie. The new Mary Poppins. Of course being young and from the east she has no idea about the first Marry Poppins. Being a romantic, comedy, action adventure girl, she was a little slow accepting the movie for the first half hour. I told her it was laying some ground work and would pick up later. She agreed to continue and sure enough she began enjoying it. Her phrase "it is interesting" means it is a good movie.

So, being she is still in purgatory (Ukraine), she is 7 hours ahead and it is past bed time. We will finish it tomorrow.

So, yes, she is still in purgatory and will be for a while yet. Visa processing from there has ground to a halt and my own personal main remaining issue from the GFC (the recession that only lasted a year, hahaha) came to a head. The house. Discussed it together and we want to try keeping the house. Finally made a final mandatory payment that "should" put us in the clear. "Should", as they have a ton of fork tongued "I gotch'yas" in the paperwork.

Downside, I can't afford to bring her back now. Savings starting from scratch. Although she works for a US company, her "home office" is in Ukraine and when she is in Ukraine, she get Ukraine rates which is next to nothing compared to here. Results, rebuilding savings will be a little slower than desired.

quick joke: How do you become a millionaire when starting a business at the beginning of the GFC?

Answer: Start with 2.

Well, when you start with 1, hmmm.

Enough hot air from me.

Thank you Enoch.

Dear Friend Dave: Why do they call them brokers? Because they make you broke.

How do you go to a casino in a $40,000 car, and return in a 1.5 million dollar vehicle? Lose your shirt at the gambling tables. Buy a bus ticket to get home.

And so it goes.
