December “Wonder” on-line journal focuses on military chaplaincies


In conjunction with the celebration of the 70th Anniversary of Orthodox Chaplaincy in the US Armed Forces, “Wonder,” the monthly on-line journal of the Orthodox Church in America’s Department of Youth, Young Adult, and Campus Ministry, is exploring the theme “For our Armed Forces.”

Deacon Nicholas Roth and Priest James Parnell share their experiences as veterans in their articles “Walking Through the Valley of Death” and “The Memory of War.”  Hieromonk Kilian [Sprecher] shares his functions and duties as a Navy Chaplain, while Deacon Jason Ketz, Wonder editor, examines the pastoral and theological concerns of war and service in the armed forces.

As always, readers are invited to submit articles, creative writing, artwork, poetry, photos, and videos for future installments.  Suggested topics are always welcome. Send all materials and comments to .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).
