of the Lincoln Elks' Lodge.
I finally got asked (I knew it was coming) to be the regular chaplain at the Elks' Lodge. I joined back in the spring when I learned I was moving back to Lincoln. They asked at that point if I wanted to be assistant chaplain. I had a feeling I was being groomed for something else. I officially got asked to become the full chaplain today, which is an officer position because the current chaplain is having to step down because of his work schedule. Now, I'm a officer and a curate.
At least they serve beer at the lodge, which beats the pants of being a CPE chaplain. Not that I'm bitter about CPE or anything. At least I no longer refer to it as Crappy Pastoral Education.
