The Rev. David Peters, founder of the Episcopal Veterans Fellowship, leads a community conversation on supporting the spiritual wellbeing of veterans, military families, and the community, including caregivers. The Rev. Peters will offer an introductory talk, after which participants will hear from panelists, share their own experiences, and offer ideas and suggestions to the community gathered. This event is part of the Cathedral’s efforts to recognize the wounds of service, the resilience of the military community, and grow our ministry with veterans and the military community.
The Rev. Dr. David W. Peters is the founder of the Episcopal Veterans Fellowship and author of Post Traumatic God: How the Church Cares for People Who Have Been to Hell and Back. Peters served as an enlisted Marine and Army Chaplain and was named in 2017 as one of five Fellows by the Episcopal Church Foundation. The Episcopal Veterans Fellowship equips Christians for missional ministry to veterans through prayer, hospitality, and reconciliation. EVF offers educational workshops, consulting, and coaching so your Church can reach out with God’s love to the veterans who live in your community. Members of the Hospitallers of St. Martin, a new monastic Christian Community within the Episcopal Church, focuses on Prayer, Hospitality, and Reconciliation for veterans and all those who have been affected by war, poverty, and violence.
