We see the horrific images all too often of violence in the workplace. Most recently, WDBJ reporter Alison Parker and cameraman Adam Ward were gunned down on live television by a former co-worker.

No one really knows what personal issues employees might be bringing to the job, but violence has become so commonplace that U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch recently declared, “It is a sad fact now that no one is safe.”

On the job, personal problems abound, and there’s often no one to help or even notice potentially dangerous signals.

One Texas-based group wants to change that by providing employers a unique solution: a chaplain. “By having chaplains in the workplace, they know that there’s somebody that they can talk to confidentially, privately and that can help them,” Chaplain Paul Shirley said. “Sometimes just talking about an issue really diffuses it for them and helps them get perspective.”
