“Numbers have never been very important to me. It’s something I learned from my years in the US Navy.”
Wayne Bouck was a United States Navy Chaplain for many years. It was his duty to conduct religious services for the sailors and marines on each ship.
Each service day, he’d arrive early, set up a display of signal flags, and have it announced that the chaplain was aboard to hold “divine services.”
The ships operated in a three-shift rotation; while one-third of the crew was on duty, one-third had shore leave and the final third was asleep. Many times, the only person who showed up for the service was Wayne!
He viewed his work as a service to God.
Whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God (First Corinthians 10:31)
