Cape of Storms
Cape Town is the only city in the world that sits astride two oceans. With the warm Indian Ocean and the Cold Atlantic meeting at Cape Point, our part of the world has long been known as the Cape of Storms. That was not particularly good for tourism so it was renamed the Cape of Good Hope. On 6th June, we were warned that a severe storm with anticipated wind speeds of up to 120km/hr would hit later that night. For the first time in my lifetime, all schools in the Cape Peninsula were ordered closed the next day, Wednesday 7 June, in anticipation of the severe storm.
"I charge you therefore before God and the Lord Jesus Christ, who will judge the living and the dead at His appearing and His Kingdom: Preach the Word! Be ready in season and out of season. Convince, rebuke, exhort, with all longsuffering and teaching." 2 Timothy 4:1-2
Duties and Responsibilities
Chaplains’ have many serious and solemn duties and responsibilities. Chaplains are responsible for the Spiritual well-being of all in their unit. In the army, the chaplain is the pastor of the soldiers, non-commissioned officers and the officers, of all ranks. In the police, a chaplain cares for all the officers and constables. A prison chaplain cares not only for the prisoners, but also for the wardens. Hospital chaplains are responsible for the spiritual care for the patients and also of the medical staff. In addition, chaplains are frequently called upon to care for the families and relatives of those they are primarily responsible for.

Ending a long and devastating drought, the severe storm that hit the Cape Peninsula Tuesday night, 6 June, into Wednesday morning, 7 June, uprooted trees, blew off rooves, brought down electricity pylons, causing fire and damage to large sections of Cape Town and surrounding areas.
An Extraordinary Experience
The Creation Museum near Cincinnati in the United States is absolutely magnificent. Shortly after it opened, I spent two days exploring, examining and experiencing the Bible-affirming Creation Museum. It was not nearly enough time. I enjoyed visiting it again this month and exploring its new exhibits.
