episode notes

Are we at war with a virus? What transferrable wisdom can we learn from the ministers who support the armed forces? Matt Croasmun interviews the U.S. Army Chief of Chaplains, Major General Thomas Solhjem, about his experience ministering to soldiers, and how we might apply lessons from armed conflict to our war with Covid-19. They discuss how to cultivate courage, human fragility and loss of control, stories of bravery and love when life is on the line, and how to support the spiritual lives of the men and women of the armed forces.

Chaplain (Major General) Thomas L. Solhjem is the Army’s 25th Chief of Chaplains. He leads the Chaplain Corps in providing religious support to the Army’s Soldiers, their Families, and Civilians.
