  1. Dear BJS Bloggers,

    First, thanks to Norm for a great post on good news!

    Second, WOW! I am impressed with Chaplain Williamson. If you don’t have time for all three videos, pull up a chair with some coffee and watch the first one.

    I didn’t know Chaplain Williamson before this video intro, but I am really impressed. He has served high level command areas, he has worked closely with a variety of non-Lutheran chaplains, he has served overseas–and he is really committed to LCMS supporting our military chaplains (to which I agree 100%).

    The international perspective and experience is what is really going to be key for this new position that he will fill, at least in my opinion. And if anyone understands the nations of this world, from a ground-level-real-world perspective (as opposed to a political-diplomatic level), it is the people of the US Army and US Navy. Their lives depend on it. Excellent choice, President Harrison!

    May our Lord bless the work of our national offices in the coming years, through Williamson, Harrison, and many other faithful servants!

    Yours in Christ, Martin R. Noland

  2. I got to know Chaplain Williamson, while serving in Seoul. I concur with Pr. Noland.

    Chaplain Williamson is the right man “for such a time as this” for our synod!
