                Part of an interview series with Duke University Divinity School faculty looking at the hidden wounds of war and the Church's resources that can help those in recovery. Created for the After the Yellow Ribbon event: Veterans today commit suicide at the highest rate in our nation’s history, have startling rates of prescription drug and alcohol abuse, and are often thought of as “damaged goods.” Our society must accept the responsibility of acknowledging and confronting the moral fragmentation that our service members suffer as a result of their experiences in war. After the Yellow Ribbon at Duke Divinity School is an opportunity for the ecclesial, academic, and martial communities in particular to listen to and learn from those who endure the burden of doing violence in our name. We invite practitioners of all disciplines, from music and the arts to theology and mental health, to respond to the challenge presented by the plight of soldiers and veterans in our midst. We want to work together to improve our efforts at prevention and reconstitution, and overcome this tragic epidemic. After the Yellow Ribbon is designed to stimulate conversation between the church, military and academic communities so that all might approach service members and veterans as human beings, and more fully understand and heal the unseen wounds of war (including PTSD and moral injury). Additional resources: divinity.duke.edu/​after-the-yellow-ribbon facebook.com/​dukemiliteschristi sites.duke.edu/​aftertheyellowribbon/​ Text of "At a Calvary Near the Ancre" by Wilfred Owen One ever hangs where shelled roads part. In this war He too lost a limb, But His disciples hide apart; And now the Soldiers bear with Him. Near Golgotha strolls many a priest, And in their faces there is pride That they were flesh-marked by the Beast By whom the gentle Christ's denied The scribes on all the people shove And bawl allegiance to the state, But they who love the greater love Lay down their life; they do not hate

                  This visual poem was my final project for the Christian Imagination class at Regent College in the winter semester of 2011. The ideas are the expressions and evolutions of the themes that were dealt with in the course. The basic idea of the video is that we, (the created images of God in his temple), are the breath of God in the world. The visual poem makes use of the concept of Tibetan Prayer flags: as the wind blows over them they release blessing into the world. However it takes the idea and subverts it. In terms of being God's Image in the world, we are both the flags and the wind. We take the breath of God with us as we live in creation. As Tolkien said, we create in the same way in which we were made. We were made from dust and breath. God took something that existed and he breathed himself into it. That is what we do, as we create, we take that which exists and we add something of ourselves to it. God made us in his image, we make things in our own image too. We add ourselves to things. I have done that with this video. I have taken the idea of the prayer flags and subverted it to fit my idea. I have also taken the old hymn and slightly changed the words to fit my concept. Lastly, I have done the entire soundtrack using my own breath, for the wind, for the poem and for the song. My hope is that all of us would realise that we are God's way of making creation sacred. We voice creation's praise (Jeremy Begbie) as we take it and add ourselves to it and offer it back up to God. I hope you enjoy. Theran Knighton-Fitt

                    The emotional power of music is proverbial, yet many are suspicious of it for that reason. This lecture examines the nature of emotion, how music might achieve its emotional effect, and whether any of our anxieties about music in worship are well grounded. The lecture is illustrated extensively with music, both recorded and performed at the piano.
