"A minister visits Afghanistan and Iraq to learn about hope and resiliency in traumatized societies.

Discussion Points

1. After reading this article, what do you know or understand about Afghanistan that you didn't know or understand before?

2. After reading this article, what do you know or understand about Iraq that you didn't know or understand before?

3. Would you want to visit Iraq? Afghanistan?

4. Rev. Kutzmark concludes:
"Empires come and go. Wars are fought and peace is sought. People live and die. But something endures. Amidst that antiquity, there is something greater than the complications of this moment in time. There is something larger that can't be seen. Call it the wisdom of the ages. Call it the sweep of history. Call it the promise of the future. Call it life renewing itself. I call that hope."
What would you call it? That is, what is this "something larger that can't be seen"? How would you describe it? Is it necessary to go to ancient lands far away to perceive it? What is the benefit of traveling to far away lands?
