LLOYD JOHN OGILVIE, was born in Kenosha, WI, on September 2, 1930. He was educated in the public schools of Kenosha and received a B.A. from Lake Forest College. He received his Master of Theology at Garrett Theological Seminary and conducted postgraduate studies at New College, University of Edinburgh, Scotland. His pastorates include Gurnee Community Church, Gurnee, IL; Winnetka Presbyterian Church, Winnetka, IL (1956–62); First Presbyterian Church, Bethlehem, PA (1962– 72); First Presbyterian Church, Hollywood, CA (1972–95); and Chaplain of the U.S. Senate (1995–2003). Before coming to the Senate he had a nationally syndicated weekly television show, ‘‘Let God Love You,’’ which was on the air for 17 years. He also had a daily radio program for 10 years. Dr. OGILVIE is the 61st Chaplain to serve the U.S. Senate. His Senate flock included not only Senators and their spouses, but every employee of the Senate. He gave the opening prayer on days the Senate was in session. He also conducted Bible study discussion groups each day of the week for the Senators, their families, and their staffs. Dr. OGILVIE emphasized nurturing others through personal relationships. He was determined to keep the Office of Chaplain nonpolitical, nonsectarian, and nonpartisan. He felt his role as Chaplain was to act as an intercessor for the Senators, serving as a trusted prayer partner and a faithful counselor. In his opening prayers, he was committed to praying to God, not preaching to the Senators. He emphasized encouragement, not persuasion. Chaplain OGILVIE led the Senate through many significant events including the impeachment of President Clinton; the attacks on 9/11; the anthrax attack in the Senate; and the contested Presidential election in 2000. Chaplain OGILVIE was awarded the Distinguished Service Citation, Lake Forest College; Preacher of the Year Award and Angel Award (Religion in Media); Silver Angel Award, 1982, 1986; Gold Medallion Book Award, 1985; and the William Booth Award, 1992. Chaplain OGILVIE is also the author of 49 books.
