The Chaplains Of The Georgia Society are committed to the spiritual well being of the members of the Society. Those members are never far from our hearts, prayers and service.
THE GEORGIA SOCIETY CHAPLAINCY CORPS
Serving The Georgia Society Of The Sons Of The American Revolution with care, concern and spiritual integrity.
Purpose Of The Chaplaincy Corps The purpose of the Chaplaincy Corps of the Georgia Society of the Sons of the American Revolution can be summed up in just one word; care! The Chaplains, commissioned by their individual chapters, are called to dedicate themselves to two simple directives and principles; 1. To be the spiritual caretaker of the individual members; 2. To be, by word and action, a link between God and Country and the Georgia Society.
Philosophy Of The Chaplaincy Corps
We believe the significance of the Chaplaincy cannot be overstated; that if a Chapter had only two members, one of them should be commissioned Chaplain. The reason for this thought process is simple; the Georgia Society is not just about “history,” it is about “brotherhood.” The Chaplain’s position is the only staff position purposefully committed to the well being of every Chapter member. His work strengthens the Chapter by helping to connect the members one to another in a genuine atmosphere of care and concern.
Goals Of The Chaplaincy Corps
The aspiration of each individual Chaplain is the under girding of the mission of the Georgia Society. In that capacity, each Chaplain is called upon to follow a pattern of connectionalism designed to heighten awareness of the members one for another. Along with conventional activities, such as leading invocations and benedictions, Chaplains are urged to attend to the spiritual needs of members, when called upon to do so and to be continually in communication with Chapter members and their families in a caring and concerned fashion.
Training Of The Chaplaincy Corps
Training is ongoing with several contacts per month between the State Chaplain and individual Chaplains in the local Chapters. A Training tape and printed material has been shared with each Chaplain, as well. And there’s a constant effort to enhance our services.
Support Of The Chaplain Corps
Our appeal is to every other leader and member of the Georgia Society. As your Chaplain seeks to serve you, please help him in every way possible. Sharing member information on a timely basis and giving him every opportunity to communicate with the members is vital.
We, the descendents of the heroes of the American Revolution, who, by their sacrifices, established the United States Of America, reaffirm our faith in the principles of liberty and our Constitutional Republic, and solemnly pledge ourselves to defend them against every foe.
The purpose of this Society is the patriotic, historical, and educational preservation of the memory of those who, by their services or sacrifices during the war of the American Revolution, achieved the independence of the American people; to unite and promote fellowship among their descendants; to inspire them and the community at large with a more profound reverence for the principles of the government founded by our forefathers; to encourage historical research pertaining to the American Revolution; to acquire and preserve the records of the individual services of the patriots of the war, as well as documents, relics, and landmarks; to celebrate the anniversaries of the prominent events of the war and of the Revolutionary period; to foster true patriotism; to maintain and extend the institutions of American freedom, and to carry out the purposes expressed in the preamble of the Constitution of our country and the injunctions of George Washington in his farewell address to the American people.
Any man, who is a lineal descendant of an ancestor who supported the war for American independence, is eligible for membership in the Sons of the American Revolution. These ancestors are referred to as Revolutionary War Patriots and include those persons who fought in the military and/or militia, who provided supplies to the American cause, who served on political bodies supporting the revolution, who signed oaths of support and similar acts.
