Ordained UMC Minister Discovers 'Tough' Retirement Duty

 

The Reverend Roger Stressman '44 has found one of the best retirement activities available to an ordained minister. Since 2006, he has been active in the chaplaincy program for Holland America Line ships, cruising the world in exchange for conducting Protestant worship services on Sundays and sea days, caring for families who experience illness or death, and assisting the captain with ship weddings.
He lists Australia, New Zealand, Greece, Turkey, Palestine, Italy and Norway among the countries he’s visited while “working.”
