"Your timing was a blessing. Our son in law is on his second fire in two weeks. As I talked with our daughter on the phone, I could hear the fatigue in her voice. Holding a “normal” life together for their kids, while working, and not knowing when her husband will come home, takes a lot of energy...which quickly gets depleted in these situations. After reading your article, I sent it on to her and encouraged her to share it with other families that might be in the same situation. I’m sure there are many families that are dealing with the fatigue and anxiety that come when these fires hit. Thank you again for your important work!"

"ICTG is doing vital work in a field of great importance. It's amazing to think how few resources have been available for religious organizations experiencing trauma, and heartening to know that, in significant part through the efforts of ICTG, many are beginning to recognize the need. This work is of great theological importance, as well--it participates critically in a growing movement toward a more embodied, less abstract Christianity. Kate Wiebe is an effective, articulate champion of both these purposes, and my community has benefited greatly from her abilities as an educator, advocate, and service provider."

"The work of ICTG is outstanding. Their care for people and communities who experience trauma (all of us) is unparalleled at this time. It can feel scary to "be prepared" for trauma, as if that some how invites trauma and tragedy... The reality is trauma and tragedy have occurred for as long as there have been humans to experience it. How incredible to be alive during a time when we have the resources of ICTG to heal and create joy out of suffering!"
