- Because the chaplain is given entrance to places most people cannot go and thereby comes by information that most people don’t have, I asked Walt about how to handle this privilege. His answers follow:
- Moments of crisis are particularly important for the chaplain to be available to the team or individuals. He mentioned the in-season death of a player and the respect that he was shown by the club as they flew him to be with the team.
- It’s important to protect the players and the club with the “inside” information you may have. Do not share information like this:
Personnel at practice
Who the Christians on the team are.
Who attends chapel or Bible studies.
- Be very careful with any information you post on facebook, twitter, in emails, in blogs, ministry newsletters, public talks or on your web site. Don’t betray this trust.
