With ongoing attempts by the liberal agenda to diminish religious freedoms for US Christian Army chaplains, it may appear that their ability to minister is curtailed. But Assemblies of God Chaplain Alison L. Ward says she understands there will be soldiers with different religious views from her beliefs, but she never has had trouble being able to minister in a pluralistic environment. She says the Apostle Paul’s encounter with the altar of an unknown god in Acts 17 inspires her in counselling situations. “Soldiers know I am a Christian chaplain, and that is my perspective in addressing their issues and concerns… I find ways to share my faith clearly and in a manner productive to bridging that gap, while at the same time being true to my God and respectful of their personhood.”
