Restoring Soul and Society from War Workshop

Restoring the Soul“Restoring Soul and Society from War:
A Call to America’s Faith Communities”

A workshop for faith leaders

This three-day workshop will equip and empower lay leaders and clergy from faith communities to tend to the moral injuries and soul wounds that result from war and military service, drawing from the unique resources of their respective traditions and from assets in their local communities. Our work will be framed by two important questions:


(1) What is the pastoral imperative for faith communities to tend to the moral, spiritual, and emotional wounds of war among our veterans and their families?

(2) What is the prophetic imperative for faith communities to serve as a moral compass for the nation?

Participating congregations and faith-based organizations are encouraged, where possible, to register teams from their community who are committed to implementing the lessons learned from the workshop.
