Karen S. Kim SOUTHEAST GLENDALE -- It was about 10 years ago that Gail Fisher sat on the floor of her church's small prayer room beside a Bible that happened to be open to Isaiah Chapter 61. As she read about how God asked ministers to "bind up the brokenhearted" and "to comfort all that mourn," Fisher said she felt something tug at her heart. Today, Fisher's new position as the community chaplain for the Lutheran Health Ministries of the Foothills requires her to do just what the Scriptures called her to do nearly a decade ago.

Cookies a welcome bright spot overseas It was a hot, 125-degree Saturday afternoon, two months into the liberation of Iraq, when the chaplain came into the medical tent asking, "who wants Girl Scout cookies?" The medical clinic had about 20 people working in it at the time, a few people looked up but said nothing. Disbelievingly I chimed in, "I do. Ya got any shortbreads?" The chaplain's response, as he reached into a beat-up cardboard box: "You get my last one." Within minutes the chaplain and his assistant were handing all sorts of cookies to the weary medics.

Here is one that would make Anna Nicole Smith just a little nervous. Jack Harris wanted to marry Derrel De Passe, as she (Derrel) was about to die. On July 7, 2000, Mr. Harris convinced the hospital chaplain at Stanford University Medical Center to marry them, as Ms. De Passe's health was rapidly deteriorating. In fact, she did die the next day. The Court of Appeal in San Francisco ruled that Mr. Harris cannot collect any of Ms. De Passe's $5-million estate because they got married without a marriage license.

Marshall Allen GLENDALE -- A new Glendale Adventist Medical Center program plans to teach people to use faith and spirituality to help cope with life's problems. "We have a real concern for healthy, functional spirituality," said Bruce Nelson, founder of the hospital's Spiritual Life Groups. The first Spiritual Life Group begins its eight-week session on May 28. Nelson, the hospital's director of community services and the chaplain's department, formed the group because he's found during his 14 years on the job that spiritual people generally manage stress better than nonspiritual people.

Amber Willard GLENDALE -- A female transient apparently stole a life-size figure of Jesus Christ from a La Crescenta church earlier this month because she thought it would help protect her. "I took the scriptures literally -- if God is with you, who can be against you?" Teri Denise Staff allegedly wrote on one of the statue's hands, which had been broken off. Staff was arrested shortly before 1 p.m. Friday in Apple Valley by San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department officials.

EAST GLENDALE — Reverberations of Virginia Tech's shooting massacre rang as clearly as a church bell in a small chapel in the east tower of Glendale Adventist Medical Center on Wednesday. About 20 hospital staff members sat in upright wooden pews as chaplains directed a short service in solemn remembrance of the 32 students who were shot to death Monday on the Blacksburg, Virginia, campus. "As we serve in the hospital, we become more sensitive to these types of things," said Al Garcilazo, senior chaplain for the hospital.

On Memorial Day, we recall with reverence the courage and sacrifice of our forbearers and honor those now in harm’s way. What follows is the true story of four men whose “last full measure of devotion” to God and country should never be forgotten. Two days out of St. Johns, Newfoundland, fog, sleet and the buildup of ice, slowed the tiny Greenland-bound convoy of two merchant ships, an Army transport — the USAT Dorchester and three escorting Coast Guard cutters, to 10 knots.

When Glendale resident Al Garcilazo was working on his doctoral dissertation, he decided to go beyond just writing a paper to earn his degree. Garcilazo, who earned his doctorate in theology from Fuller Seminary, began writing a book with a little help from his mentor. His book, "The Corinthian Dissenters and the Stoics," was published in May. In the book, Garcilazo discusses the controversy of 1 Corinthians 15 regarding the denial of the resurrection of the dead. He ties it into Stoic philosophy.

A recent show on National Public Radio focused on chaplains in the workplace. The interview was at the Tyson pork processing plant in Iowa and featured a chaplain who is ordained a Lutheran but ministers to all denominations or to those with no faith tradition at work. The idea was to support staff and keep employees happier. Overall, management was happy and found the chaplains to be effective. But not everyone is thrilled with the idea. Some oppose the practice, saying the workplace is not the kind of house of worship a chaplain should be working in. What do you think?

S ecretary of the Navy Donald C. Winter reportedly issued instructions to Navy chaplains earlier this year that religious portions of events such as graduations or command changes should be "nonsectarian in nature" and that chaplains must "be willing to function in a pluralistic environment." The instructions have prompted a debate about whether a chaplain's ability to express his or her faith is justified in a secular setting and whether phrases such as "praying in Jesus' name" during an invocation could offend the ranks.
