Faith Under Fire: Can your belief system withstand
the assaults of life?

Plus Interview with U of M Gopher Wrestling Coach, J Robinson

Join us as Colonel John Morris, U.S. Army shares a dynamic message of faith lived in and out of the foxhole of everyday life.

When faced with life’s challenges; financial hardship, failing health, difficult relationships, social and political upheaval, what we put our faith in is put to the test. Will that faith be brave? Intelligent? Practical? Will it provide hope and meaning, or will it be blind, wishful thinking?

Colonel Morris is the co-creator, along with MG Larry Shellito, of the “Minnesota Beyond the Yellow Ribbon” reintegration program for returning combat veterans and their families. His decorations include the Bronze Star Medal, the Legion of Merit, the Meritorious Service Medal with 3 Oak Leaf Clusters, Army Commendation Medal with 3 Oak Leaf Clusters. He was mobilized in support of Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2003 and has remained on active duty since.
