no chaplains or indians please

There are so many ways to get rejected as a Chaplain.
Here are a few common ones:
My pastor is already here.
We're fine thank you.
Thanks for coming by though.
I'm all good! (spoken from a hospital bed)
But none so clear and blunt as today. When a sleeping man sat straight up in bed and yelled "No! I don't want a chaplain now or ever."
And before I could take it personally he added
"And no Indian doctors either!"

...rejected by men but chosen by God and precious to Him.
1 Peter 2:3-5
