ARDMORE - As a chaplain for Huntsville police, Lonnie Jones speaks words of humor and sorrow, but there are times he is speechless.
Jones, who was the guest speaker for the annual Ardmore Police Memorial on Wednesday, said he says things he shouldn't, says things he doesn't want to say and struggles to find the right words.
Jones, who also preaches at Maysville Church of Christ, said that as a minister, he makes jokes to lighten the mood, and some jokes probably aren't minister-approved humor.
He recalled an instance before officers were going on a raid, and the supervisor asked Jones to give the officers advice should they get shot.
Jones told them if they saw beautiful angel wings, to go toward the light. If they saw ugly wings, to hold on until the doctor arrived.
"I told them if they saw Victoria's Secret angel wings, shoot me, too," Jones said.
During his 18 years as chaplain, Jones also has delivered news of death and said words he has never wanted to say.
"I've knocked on that door of a loved one. I've gone to a school to tell a 6-year-old boy his mama is not going to pick him up today," Jones said.
Yet, it was a story about a situation that left him speechless that Jones struggled to retell.
"An (officer) told me, 'I have no use for religion, because I don't feel God has much use for me, after all I've done,' " Jones said.
When Jones could not think of comforting words, he prayed. He then remembered scripture teaching how God is partial to shepherds, he said.
"Shepherds protect and defend the helpless sheep," Jones said.
Jones noted the Bible verse John 15:13, "Greater love has no man than this, than to lay down his life for his friends."
Jones said officers approach cars, kick in doors and put on bulletproof vests for those they love, those they don't like and people they don't know.
"How much more of a special place do (officers) have in the heart of God? Jones asked. "Our creator, God, understands what it means to put someone he loves in harm's way."
Jones said Jesus died to protect his flock. "And I sleep better at night knowing you are out there," he told officers in the audience. - ICPC_09f.HTML, 14 Nov 1999 [cached]
Lonnie Jones is a family minister, licensed professional counselor, team-building expert, and rock climbing and rappelling enthusiast.
He's also a family man with a wife and kids.
And he's a chaplain to the Huntsville Police Department's SWAT Team.
Although he's an easy-going and likable guy, when Jones showed up at his first SWAT training session in 1992, he wasn't welcomed with open arms.
He found a clannish group of men who seemed suspicious of him.
Jones said he didn't even know what the ''SR team'' was. A minister at Memorial Parkway Church of Christ, Jones had volunteered to participate in the police department's chaplain program.
In 1992, the chaplains decided to dedicate their individual efforts to a specific group of officers.
While looking over the list, Jones said he asked about the ''SR team,'' what it did. Nobody knew, but Jones was assigned to it.
He jotted down the time of the members' next training session, then showed up and said he was their chaplain.
Jones said he'd go with them.
And he did - in his dress shoes.
By the next week, Jones had learned that the ''SR team'' was the department's special response team, better known as the SWAT Team.
This time, he showed up wearing a new pair of running shoes.
Since then, he's never missed a training day or call-out.
''It took him a while to break in, for us to feel comfortable around him,'' Daly said. ''But he's one of our greatest assets today.''
Jones plays varying roles for the SWAT team, among them helping train officers to rappel.
''We couldn't hire someone who is more competent in rock climbing and rappelling,'' said SWAT Sgt. Rodney Baker. ''And Lonnie is just a great guy. He's not just our chaplain, he is one of us.''
