The Spiritual Pillar

Background

The importance of Spiritual Fitness to the American warfighter has been recognized since the Chaplain Corps was officially created on July 29, 1775 by the Continental Congress. Spirituality is an individual conviction and expression of beliefs that give a person meaning and value. Spirituality can be expressed religiously as well as non-religiously.

The Air Force is dedicated to creating an environment in which people can practice their spirituality without prejudice. Mutual respect is an essential part of Air Force culture.

Spiritual Fitness Checklist

Increase knowledge in your faith

Exercise spiritual reflection/prayer

Find others with whom you can exercise your spiritual fitness

If other Airmen criticize your spirituality, don’t rush to judgment. Try to handle at the personal level and use it as an opportunity to discuss the importance of Spiritual Fitness and why it matters to you. Recognize that not everyone values the Spiritual Pillar and that, in the end, you may agree to disagree.*

*If unable to resolve & you feel your rights have been infringed upon, report the complaint to your chain of command, as appropriate.

Spiritual Self-Assessment

Please answer the following questions to yourself:

Who did you treat better – your spouse or your peers/subordinates?

Are you secretly pleased when someone else fails?

Are you secretly annoyed when someone else succeeds?

Are you prone to bitterness?

Do you have any habits that are harmful to the people you love?

Is there evidence that you are more spiritually fit this year than last?

How often do you participate in religious or spiritual activities?

Daily? Weekly? Monthly? Annually?

For weddings/funerals? Holidays only? Not at all?

Do you keep your word and do what you say you will do?

Would your family/friends agree with your answer?

Do you pull your fair share of the workload?

Do you have unmet spiritual or religious needs that we can help meet?

If you you’d like to discuss your answers, please contact the Chaplain’s Office at 678-655-CHAP (2427)
