    Sermon on the T-Shirt

    Hello, and welcome to the Chaplain’s Corner. Spring is almost here in the Texas Hill Country. I saw verbenas blooming last week and the bluebonnets are starting to pop. There are tens of thousands of bluebonnets out there. (I stopped counting at 9,458. Not really. ) It’s going to be a really good year for flowers because of all the rain ...

    New Book, New Page, New Puzzle

    Hello, and welcome to the Chaplain’s Corner 2009. New Year’s 2009! Wow. I can still remember back in high school when I thought the year 2000 was so far in the future that it would never get here. Doesn’t seem possible, yet here it is again...another new year. A new year. A time of new things. Some of us are lucky ...

    Chaplain's Corner: Introducing Chaplain Bill Wolfe

    763 - Llano. I'm 10-41, 10-8. For nearly nine years now that's been my standard greeting to dispatch as I start a new shift as Deputy Wolfe, Llano County Sheriff's Department. So it seemed fitting somehow that I use it as I start this new "shift" - writing for PoliceLink. Welcome to the PoliceLink Chaplain's Corner. I contacted PoliceLink about writing ...

    LEOs, Preachers & Heroes

    Hello and welcome to the May 2010 Edition of the Chaplain's Corner.    I was honored by being invited to speak at the annual LE memorial ceremony at the Veteran's Admin Hospital in Kerrville, hosted by the VA Police Department and will be/was held on 6 May.  I thought I'd share my thoughts here for those interested to hear my talk, but ...

    History Lesson

    Welcome to the June 2010 Edition of the Chaplain’s Corner. Like last year, I’m writing my June column just days after the conclusion of Police Week, but UNlike last year, I can talk – I have a voice! I can even YELL at wayward bull calves in bar ditches when I have to – one of the “little pleasures” of being ...

    You Have Received a Hit Confirmation

    Hello, and welcome once again to the Chaplain’s Corner. Boy, here it is July already, the part of the year when most everyone focuses a bit closer on patriotism. At least until the fireworks are over. (That’s because they aren’t wearing body armor in the Texas sun. We just think about staying in the car where it’s cool, well… cooler anyway.) ...

    Chaplain's Corner: Some Things Don’t Change

    Hello, and welcome once again to the February Chaplain’s Corner. It keeps trying to be Spring here in the Highland Lakes area…highs go from the 40s to 70s to 50s then back to 70s; gives some of us Spring Fever and others “cedar fever.” I just wish it would bring us some r-a-i-n. This drought keeps up, and the birds and ...

    Thanksgiving Prayers from PoliceLink's Chaplains

    Thanksgiving Prayers from PoliceLink's Chaplains
    Hello, and welcome once again to the Thanksgiving edition of the Chaplain’s Corner. Since Thanksgiving is the time specially designated to giving God thanks, I thought I’d open this up and let a couple of my PL Chaplain friends share their thanks and prayers. *A Prayer from Chaplain Tom, Hampton, VA* Thank You, Lord, for letting me roam far and wide. ...

    New Year and Paintbrushes

    Hello, and welcome to the Chaplain’s Corner 2010. New Year’s 2010! Wow. I can still remember back in high school when I thought the year 2000 was so far in the future that it would never get here. (I say that every year, don’t I?) New Year and Paintbrushes. Now, I bet there’s at least one person out there who’s wondering ...

    It Doesn’t Work That Way

    Hello, and welcome to the Chaplain’s Corner. Have you heard this one before? “The best laid plans of mice and men...” My Dear Ol’ Dad used to say: “There’s the easy way and the Wolfe way.” I guess my motto sorta follows the same logic: “WAEF-RTM: When all else fails, read the manual.” You’ve probably never been one of those who’ve ...

    There Is a Way

    Hello, and welcome to February and the Chaplain’s Corner. February brings some mixed emotions for me this again this year as it seems it does every year. I’ll hit 57 on the 28th. For some reason, sixty doesn’t seem near as elderly as it did in the last century. “Last century!” Now that WILL make one feel old… “When were you ...

    The Greatest Gift

    Hello, and welcome to the Chaplain’s Corner. Here it is December again. The election is behind us, as is Thanksgiving, and the New Year is rushing at us. I’m ready for life to slow down a little… Christmas shopping’s got to get done again and my 56th birthday coming at me next February - about 20 years too soon. Perhaps it ...

    The Death Notification

    Got your attention, didn’t I? Greetings from the Bluebonnet Capital of Texas and welcome to this edition of the Chaplain’s Corner. Okay, Okay…Llano is “officially” the Deer Capital of Texas, but we’ve got so many bluebonnets up and blooming already this year it could go the other way. Well, on to “business.” This is something that’s been on my heart for ...

    Chaplain's Corner: In The Words of the Song

    Hello, and welcome once again to the November edition of the Chaplain’s Corner. Well, I wanted to wait until after the election to write to you since it was so close to the first of the month. I had hoped to be basking in the glow of a McCain/Palin victory. I’m very sad that the good Governor had to endure what ...

    Chaplain’s Corner: Does a Cop's Love Measure Up?

    Chaplain’s Corner: Does a Cop's Love Measure Up?
    Hello, and welcome to February and to the Chaplain’s Corner. Oh, before I get started, something I think I forgot to mention in my intro…I write from a decidedly Christian (but not a denominational) perspective and will mention the name and person of Jesus in some articles. Now that I’ve gotten that little disclaimer out of the way… February brings some ...

    Chaplain’s Corner: How Wonderful Is Love like This?

    Chaplain’s Corner: How Wonderful Is Love like This?
    Hey! You came back for more of the Chaplain’s Corner. I must of said something right. Last time I wrote about love as described in the book of I Corinthians in the New Testament of the Bible and question: “Does our love measure up?” I went on to open my Bible to the concordance in the back and looked at the ...

    The Scanner

    Hello, and welcome back to the Chaplain’s Corner. July 2011… only 16 more months! I only hope this country lasts that long. I have to wonder: “What part of ‘NO’ don’t Senators understand?” And of course, too, when you read the headlines on Drudge, you keep seeing things proposed and pending that are straight out of the Book of Revelation. But ...

    The Parable of the Lawnmower?

    Welcome to the Chaplain’s Corner one more time. Well, it was inevitable… yesterday I mowed the grass for the first time this year. If I lived up north in “Yankee Country” that wouldn’t be so surprising, but for central Texas (where in years past I’ve mowed even in January and February), that is a sad commentary on the state of our ...

    Chaplain's Corner: A Look at The Book

    Chaplain's Corner: A Look at The Book
    Hello, and welcome to the Chaplain’s Corner. I survived turning 55! Wasn’t such a big deal after all. And March is here again. That means severe storm season will soon be upon us here in central Texas and that could be a big deal. We badly need the rain, but the hail and damaging winds and potential tornadoes I can do ...

    The Rookie

    Hello, and welcome once again to the Chaplain’s Corner. I thought I’d share one of my “vintage” Christmas columns from previous years with you. This one is from 2001: It seems strange, I guess… as I pondered and pondered a Christmas message, the phrase “walking the beat” kept coming to mind. Way back in the early days of police work, before ...
