Becoming inclusive may be life's most difficult journey. This message will focus on why it's so difficult, how a person might become more inclusive, and what that means for any person and organization.
Moral Injury is an invisible wound that many of our veterans suffer. By understanding moral injury, we can help our veterans heal as well as recognize our own wounds and begin to forgive ourselves.
Rev. Jobe will encourage work on the person in the mirror, lest we start thinking inclusion is always about other people. That delicate balance between self-love and narcissism will be explored while we balance our social, political agenda against self-care, fun, the deep breath that reminds us what a glory it is to be alive. Whether you make it to service on June 10 or not, don't forget to take those glorious deep breaths.
