IT'S NOT ABOUT US - by Chaplain Hillar Alkok

CPCA Registrar Chaplain Hillar Alkok sent me this short article he recently wrote which includes a reflection upon his experience as a TPS Chaplain following the Toronto Yonge Street van attack where eleven people were killed in April of 2018.

In this article Hillar wrote, "Something I learned a long time ago, is that my brilliance won’t give me favour with the police services I volunteer at. I believe that the one who is “greater” than you and me, is the one who opens and closes doors."

If you know Hillar, you will recognize that his referral to "his brilliance" is tongue in cheek. After travelling and ministering alongside this man in the Ukraine for a couple of weeks in 2019, I can assure you he is one of the most humble chaplains I know, and has a sense of humor that is abundantly refreshing. I believe you will find his writing refreshing from a multi-faith perspective acknowledging that there is One much greater than us who provides opportunities, if we remain humble servants.

Congratulations Hillar on your move to Alberta and on being accepted as a RCMP "K" Division Chaplain to serve the men and women who police the area of Cochrane. I know you will be a tremendous blessing there as you were through your years of service with the Toronto PS.

May you enjoy the article.

Warmest regards,

Bruce Ewanyshyn
