SCHRIEVER AIR FORCE BASE, Colo. --
The Schriever Chaplain Corps office hosts an ongoing video series dubbed “Sacred Space” on the Schriever Air Force Base Facebook page.
“Sacred Space” is a video that is designed to easily reach Airmen, space professionals and civilians.
“We are able to engage Airmen and their families over the internet, by sending out a brief video message just encouraging them and inspiring hope as they go through their journey,” said Capt. Ronald Lawrence, Peterson-Schriever Garrison chaplain.
Despite COVID-19 pandemic affecting many Airmen, the Chaplain Corps office created a way to prevail and boost morale.
“[Sacred Space] was birthed out of trying to do something creative to reach folks during the time of COVID response,” Lawrence said.
Although the motivational messages are provided by the Chaplain Corps office here, the messages are meant for everyone - no religious devotion is necessary.
Staff Sgt. Lathaniel Leigh, religious affairs Airman, said she has the opportunity to create and present Sacred Space videos as well.
“‘Sacred Space’ is more of a spiritual message than it is a religious message,” Leigh said. “So as a religious affairs Airman, I can speak on spiritual [matters], but I cannot counsel on religion.”
Providing viewer feedback on the “Sacred Space” videos is welcomed by the Chaplain Corps office.
“If people have suggestions or ideas for topics, or just how [the message] has impacted them, feedback is nice and we're always open to ideas as well,” Leigh said.
To contact the Chaplain Corps office, call 567-3705.
Sacred Space videos can be found on the SAFB FB page, or the “Chaplain” section in the Schriever AF Connect app.
