“At one of the first Conference of Bishops meetings I attended, I heard of this Community Clergy Training Program, an initiative to help clergy recognize, understand, and competently address the needs of returning veterans in their congregations. I thought then how welcome such training and understanding would have been for me in my former parish. I am excited that we now have an opportunity to establish this training in our synod.
I invite you to seriously consider participating in this upcoming Interfaith Community Clergy Train the Facilitator Program. It is a two day commitment, but there is a lot of information to share. Following the training, you will be encouraged to promote this program further in your communities.
I hope you will join me in this important work and you are welcome to share this information with our ecumenical and inter faith partners as well.”
