Moral Injury from Sexual Abuse and War: Soul Wounds and Soul Repair ~September 27

Wounds and Soul Repair SAVE THE DATE – Moral Injury from Sexual Abuse and War: Soul Wounds and Soul Repair (September 27) rSeptember 27, 2013** 8:30a.m. – 4 p.m. Plymouth United Church of Christ 4126 Ingersoll Avenue Des Moines, IA 50312 The horrific nature of sexual abuse and the trauma of war and military combat are not human experiences we like to think about deeply, yet understanding these experiences is crucial to life together in our communities.
