About the Book

Sheldon Webster’s recognition of our obligation to our veterans and particularly to Gold Star families who have sacrificed so much inspired Sheldon to create the Burton Place Veterans Chapel and Library. In this book, he not only tells the story of his remembrance of the service of our veterans and particularly the service of four of his close friends who made the ultimate sacrifice but he also relates his spiritual journey through the development of this project. Even though the hand of God is always at work in our lives, we often do not see it. But the reader will be amazed to see how God worked and who and what He used to fulfil His plans for the Burton Place Veterans Chapel and Library. Interspersed with stories of war heroes, interesting characters and others who provided funds, materials, and construction labor for the Chapel, Sheldon Webster’s narrative clearly identifies significant events that could only be the unseen hand of God working out the establishment and the completion of the Chapel. While any one of the events described by Sheldon may appear to some as having happened by chance, there occurred in succession too many events necessary to complete the Chapel that can only be explained by God being in every detail of the Burton Place Veterans Chapel and Library. The reader is left with not just this specific truth but also with the truth that God is good and seeks our good for us, which truth should encourage us in our faith and give us perseverance and hope in all matters, both small and great, not only for ourselves but for our nation and all mankind.
