    Still Dying After All These Years

    In church on Sunday, as is our custom, mention was made in the morning prayers of those US service members who have died in Afghanistan, our nation’s longest war.

    Your pastor, Rev. Charlie Morris, and I were classmates at New Brunswick Theological Seminary.
