The Business of New
By Jesse Stroup, Director of Spiritual Care
Lifeline Chaplaincy Dallas

He who is seated on the throne said, “I am making everything new!” Then he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true. “ Revelation 21:5 This is preceded by, “. . .God himself will be with them and be their God. He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.” Revelation 21:3-4

At Lifeline Dallas we are in the business of receiving from Our Heavenly Father what is new, fresh, and life-giving and passing it on to others. God gives us many opportunities to do this as we visit on a regular basis in Dallas hospitals. As we start the New Year, I hope you find the information listed below encouraging and spiritually uplifting.

Lifeline Dallas’ office is in a new location. We are now downtown Dallas at 511 N. Akard, Suite 202, Dallas, TX 75201. I can be reached at (888-767-6363) or www.LifelineChaplaincy.org. You are welcome to visit at our new location. Wesub-lease this offce suite from Abilene Christian University who has a satellite campus in downtown Dallas. This is a new and great working relationship with ACU.

Lifeline Chaplaincy has a new logo and calling cards for hospital volunteers. These cards have contact information on them so you can easily let us know of friends, family, or loved ones in Dallas hospitals who might appreciate a visit from Lifeline Volunteers.

Lifeline Chaplaincy has new names for training classes: Ministry In Times of Illness and Loss, Part One; and our Advanced Listening Skills Class is now Ministry In Times of Illness and Loss, Part Two. We welcome your participation in these workshops that are held at various locations throughout Texas. Our first class in Dallas is March 21-22. Go to Lifeline Chaplaincy website for more details.

We have new active Lifeline Volunteers: Dell Anne Patterson at Baylor Irving, Belinda Smith at Methodist Charlton, Dorothy Stevens at Baylor Charlton, Ronnie Walker at Baylor Irving, and Victoria Williams at Baylor University Medical Center.

Lifeline Volunteers take on new roles: Martha Vannoy volunteers at Baylor Plano and Heart Hospital and also comes in as my administrative assistant. Virginia Vaught will assist in training new volunteers at Presbyterian Dallas, Texas Health Resource.

Lifeline Dallas has new statistics. The Volunteers and I made 5,907 patient visits in 2013 and adding the family members and staff visits, our total visits were 10,379; an increase from 2012. I am very thankful for the compassionate, refreshing visits of our Lifeline Volunteers.

Renewing our minds . . . At our Prayer Gatherings and Mini Workshops we are emphasizing renewing our minds, so after listening to patients, we have new passages from God’s Word to share, new songs to sing with them, and new ways of expressing our adoration and praise to our Heavenly Father and our Savior Jesus the Messiah in prayer! We are keenly open to being empowered by the Holy Spirit and passing that on to those we meet. Thank you for your part in prayer, support, advocating, encouraging, serving at special events, making pillows, and sending referrals for us to visit.
