Joe Lusk

I opened the Bible I had received after my service as an Army Chaplain during our mobilization 29 years ago. I read the inscription written in longhand on the front flyleaf: “Chaplain Lusk, thanks for your support during Desert Storm.” I had not read these words in quite a while, and I felt a new sense of appreciation for their personal touch. Old words of kindness can rekindle new feelings of gratitude. The writer, Matthew Zimmerman, also penned his name followed by his signature block: “Chaplain (Major General), United States Army, Chief of Chaplains.” “Be kind to one another” (Ephesians 4:32a).
