Military Chaplains Study Ministry to Nones
An interesting article about Navy chaplains noted a recent annual training event whose topic was “A Strategy for the Delivery of Religious Ministry to None, Dones, and Millennials.”
The [course] is designed to provide chaplains and [chaplain assistants] with the knowledge, skills and abilities to deliver meaningful religious ministry to millennials who are religious, have no religious preference, or who have disaffiliated from religion.
Some militant atheists have said the only chaplain who could truly minister to the “nones” would be an atheist chaplain, oxymoron though that is.
Clearly, though, chaplains minister to all — even the “nones” and “dones.”
