Working is the theme of an ongoing speaker series in which people talk about what they do all day and how they feel about what they do. Many people within our congregation are engaged in fascinating work, and this series gives us an opportunity to learn more about what they do.
The next segment of the series will be Sunday, January 21st featuring new member Matthew Nesheim. Matt entered the Army on May 10, 2005 as an Infantryman. He served two tours, the first during the “Surge” in Iraq from 2007-2008 and the second during the “Surge” in Afghanistan from 2009-2010. In Iraq, he was a member of an elite reconnaissance platoon tasked with hunting down the most-wanted terrorists in Iraq and Baghdad. In Afghanistan he was a squad leader in the 82nd Airborne Division. He exited the Army in 2010, when he and his wife Kate relocated to Milwaukee, WI where she was working on her PhD.
Matt’s talk will take place after a brief coffee break following the Sunday morning service. Those who are interested will be invited to take their coffee/tea into the Christy Room for about 45 minutes. The first 15-20 minutes will be an informal talk by Matt, leaving the remaining time for questions from those in attendance
