The Faith-Based Organization Fighting for Combat Vets and First Responders in a Powerful Way

Published

on

Anyone who has been, or loved, a combat veteran or first responder, knows the immense struggle that can come with the job.

Their everyday life can contain horrific, sometimes unspeakably tragic things the rest of us civilians are usually insulated from. The trauma that comes with handling such things can last a lifetime, but mainstream secular support systems usually only address the superficial struggles that come along with trauma.

One organization, however, is making a deep, powerful difference in the lives of those who have served their nation and communities.

REBOOT Alliance is an organization with a heart for our veterans and FRs, and offers these men and women “hope after trauma” with their incredible faith-based program, as their website explains.

“Too often, the first to respond to the needs of others are the last to seek help for themselves following a traumatic event,” they say, but REBOOT is dedicated to changing that in an incredible way.

REBOOT’s approach includes classes aimed at helping combat veterans “recover from the spiritual and moral wounds of war,” rather than pretending those wounds aren’t there. Since 2011, they’ve helped thousands do just that.

Their twin program for first responders addresses “the critical incident stress and trauma faced by those in the law enforcement, firefighter, EMS, 911 communications, hospital emergency staff, and corrections communities,” the website continues.

Of course, the backbone of REBOOT is that their private, peer-led programs which blend “clinical insight with Christian faith-based support” serves the entire family of the veteran or FR, and is offered at no cost to participants.

REBOOT first began as a small group meeting in 2011 in the home of occupational therapist Dr. Jenny Owens and her husband, Evan. Since then, it has grown to hundreds of courses, helping thousands of men, women, and their families across the United States.

“All of our courses are free…we provide meals and childcare and really take a look at…how we can heal our souls from the trauma that we may sustain when we go through traumatic experiences downrange on deployments,” Evan Owens said in an interview with PureFlix about their program for veterans.

“When any of us go through any traumatic experience…it’s really a catalyst for a conversation about faith,” Owens added, noting the failure of secular and mainstream options for vets and FRs to address the soul of the person, not just their body and mind.

“We’re a community first and a course second,” Owens explained. “We look at what can God teach us about the human spirit and the wounding and healing of that spirit.”

SCOTUS Sides With Religious Schools And Hospitals In Employment Discrimination Case

Published

on

The Supreme Court, in its second religious freedom decision, decided to side with religious employers, which includes schools, hospitals, and social services organizations, stating they are exempt from certain aspects of the employment discrimination law when that law conflicts with closely held religious beliefs. If you listen closely, you can hear the screams of the angry LGBTQ+ mob ripping through America as it dawns on them they have no right to force their beliefs upon those who disagree with their lifestyle choices. Here’s more from The Daily Wire: The 7-2 decision had the same breakdown as the Supreme Court’s contraception mandate decision; Chief Justice John Roberts sided with the court’s conservatives, as did Justices Elena Kagan and Stephen Breyer, and Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor dissented. The case before the court involved two Catholic schools, St. James Catholic School and Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic School, that dismissed employees who later sued. Religious institutions typically have a so-called “ministerial exemption” allowing them more leeway in hiring and firing and certain protection from employment discrimination suits, but the case before the Supreme Court ultimately tested whether there was a specific limit to that “ministerial exemption,” particularly where the fired employees were not technically members of the church’s ministry. Employers have the right to decide who they want to hire and not hire, to terminate employment or not. It’s their business. They should be able to do what they want. Especially when it comes to actual religious institutions. This is a hard pill to swallow for the left who seems to think that employers themselves, by starting a business, have no rights, or give those up the moment they create a company. If a business owner doesn’t want someone to work at their business, they have the right to say…

Instead Of Abolishing Police, How About Abolishing Abortion And Planned Parenthood? OPINION

Published

on

Over the last several weeks, we’ve all witnessed our nation being further destroyed and torn apart by individuals who claim to be fighting against racism and police brutality. We’ve watched as these same folks burn businesses to the ground in the name of peace, a message stuffed to the gills with oxymoronic irony that appears to be lost on folks who are trying to justify this behavior on the grounds of the cause we now know as “black lives matter.” That’s a phrase we’ve heard a lot lately. And you know what? It’s true. Black lives really do matter. Black lives are image bearers of God, which means they have intrinsic value and worth. Black lives are no different than lives of any other color or ethnicity. Adam and Eve are our first parents. Our blood is the same shade of red. Our ancestry is the exact same when you trace it back to the beginning. We all suffer from the same fallen nature, the same sinful disposition, that has earned us a place under the wrath of God, with our only hope being Jesus Christ and the work He accomplished through His life, death, and resurrection. Since black lives really do matter, instead of abolishing police departments, we should all be united in a fight against the ultimate destroyer of the black community: Abortion. Yes, instead of tossing out police departments, we ought to be giving Planned Parenthood the boot. More black lives have been taken at abortion clinics than have ever been killed by evil, twisted police officers. And that’s not to make light of police brutality. It’s a real thing. It exists. Perhaps we as conservatives have been so gung-ho in the past about blindly supporting police that we’ve ignored that reality. Well, it’s hard to ignore…
