Patterns of Light
Poetry by J.S. Hartman

JS Hartman

Though strong winds may howl and storm clouds may roll,

I’m safe and content in the depths of my soul.

When dangers surround me, my soul knows no harm.

God carries me snug in the fold of His arm…

From poem titled Safely Secure, p. 36

U.S. Army Chaplain J.S. Hartman (LTC) Retired, shares poetry about faith, family and life. His over 100 poems will uplift, inspire and comfort throughout all seasons of life.

Hartman is the founding pastor at New Life Sanctuary in Bloomingdale, Georgia, and serves as a full-time hospice chaplain at Hospice Savannah. He often shares his poems with his patients and their families; many say his poems bring them comfort during difficult days of transition and loss. During sermons, Hartman occasionally recites his poems to encourage his congregation in their faith. Many say his poetic patterns shine the Gospel of the Light of the world, Jesus Christ.

J.S. Hartman holds a Master’s of Divinity from Saint Thomas University, a Bachelor’s of Theology from Texas Bible College, and is an ordained minister with the United Pentecostal Church International.
