From Rev. Kelly Wadsworth, Seattle Presbytery:
From October 1-31, 2017, I am spearheading an important project for Iraq and Afghanistan veterans in our Greater Seattle congregations.
“Profound Change after War” is a way for service members to reflect on their own spiritual encounter and transformation from their own perspective.
Participation involves a 40-60 minute in-person interview describing “an experience when you recognized that you had been profoundly changed by war.” In honor of our veterans, each participant will receive a $75 Amazon gift certificate.
Visit www.profoundchangeafterwar.com for more information. The attached flyer provides additional details and is available in hard copy as well.
As a Teaching Elder in the Seattle Presbytery and as an Army Chaplain who served with the 1-161 INF BN in Balad, Iraq (‘07-‘08), I am the lead on this project. I am happy to speak further with congregations about why profound encounters are a critical piece of our national conversations.
