Clergy workshop set for Sept. 5

The Community Service Council of Greater Tulsa will host a one-day workshop Sept. 5 to equip and empower local clergy to draw upon the unique resources of their respective traditions in order to tend to the moral injuries and soul wounds that result from war.

The workshop, “Restoring the Soul from War: A Call to America’s Faith Communities,” will be held at Asbury United Methodist Church, 6767 S. Mingo Road,  Tulsa, and is funded through a grant by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. There is no registration fee or cost to participants.

Rev. Chris J. Antal, a U.S. Army Reserve Chaplain and Director of Faith Community Development at Soldier’s Heart, will facilitate the workshop. Soldier’s Heart, a not-for-profit organization based in Troy, N.Y., trains and guides community-based efforts to restore Veterans and communities from the effects of war, according to a media release.

One or two individuals from a faith community may participate for the sake of introductory learning, but they should understand that this seminar is designed to help congregational teams implement steps for addressing soul injury created by war experiences.

Registration closes Sept. 1. Each attending congregational/team member should contact Chanel Jones, a Community Service Council of Greater Tulsa staff member, at (918) 699-4292 to register.
