Lake Reflections: Co-ChaplainsSHARON -- I've been bringing my daughter, Izabel, with me to Silver Lake since she was an infant. Now, nearly 6 years old, she has been on several retreats, a handful of day visits, and has spent 3 weeks with me there as I served as chaplain. Let me correct myself: during our week last year, Izabel informed me that we are both chaplains, and so now we serve as co-chaplains. 08/19/2014
