In small groups, then as a larger group, describe your observations to the following concept: We have been in combat for so long many people have lost their edge when it comes to the science and art of Garrison Operations. UMTs are now more familiar with Operations Orders and less familiar with how to do ministry in the garrison. Whether in garrison or deployed, ministry should be intentional.

Why? b. The Word document, “Religious Operations in the Context of Garrison Operations” may be used to generate discussions (at Resources Chief of Chaplains Quarterly Training).
