Deployment represents one of the greatest challenges to faith and life a military family can face. How can churches help?
In this frank and open conversation, Rachel (herself currently undergoing a lengthy separation from her deployed husband) answers questions from Sarah, Erin, and Bri about what life is like for a military family, what it takes to survive an extended deployment, and how Christians can support their military brothers and sisters in Christ throughout this difficult season of life.
With timely tie-ins to Memorial Day, Mental Health Awareness Month, Armed Forces Sunday, and National Military Appreciation Month, this episode also builds off Rachel’s recent Lutheran Witness article “How the Church Can Support Military Families During Deployment.”
Read Rachel’s article in The Lutheran Witness online magazine at witness.lcms.org/2021/how-the-church-can-support-military-families-during-deployment.
