Every day, port chaplains are reaching out to seafarers that arrive on ships to the Port of Vancouver, sharing the love of God and the Good News with them.
A story years in the making. A Chaplains Story.
Looking a little like Jesus strolling down the path calling out to Zacchaeus, the Chaplain shouted up to Big Ron on his forklift. "Hey there Ron, how're things?"
This is the story of a Skeptical Manager & A Corporate Chaplain...
Ronnie looked stern and grumpy seated in his big manager’s chair staring at me over the rim of his reading glasses.

God is a playwright who is deeply interested in character development; and he uses all sorts of plot twists and genres and devices, things we can see, in order to bring about the changes we cannot see. Workplace chaplains remind people that the script of their lives is no accident, that there is meaning and purpose to the plot, the themes and the other characters in the play. Enjoy this 3 Act Play!
