Pastors advocate and educate on addiction issues (Bismarck Tribune)
Posted 12/02/13 (Mon)
Alcohol and drug addiction in North Dakota has created alarming statistics that will take the work of the entire community to tackle and address.
That was the theme at a recent educational seminar at the Heartview Foundation that brought together numerous pastors and priests from around the Bismarck-Mandan region.
Heartview Executive Director Kurt Snyder discussed with faith leaders how they could assist in addressing the drug and addiction issues in the community, and how they could advocate for change.
“We’ve always had a history of involving the clergy in what we do,” said Snyder. “The people that come to our door step are broken spiritually, as well as many times physically and mentally, so the clergy have always been a very important part of what we do.”
