On Saturday, September 9, Pastor Horn and some of our Gloria Dei women participated in the LWML (Lutheran Women in Mission) Zone 22 Fall Celebration at Community Lutheran San Marcos. After breakfast and LWML business, Pastor Horn, our Zone 22 chaplain, led Matins. Then Navy Chaplain Scott Shields gave a presentation about his role in the U.S. Navy here in San Diego. Chaplain Shields recently gave his very interesting presentation at Gloria Dei in August. He is doing very important work bringing Christ to people who have very difficult jobs and often suffer from stress, depression, and hopelessness. We thank God for Chaplain Shields and his ministry to our wonderful servicemen and women in the Navy.
