In COURAGE TO RETURN a man when faced with the diagnosis of his wife’s Alzheimer’s disease gives into his weaknesses and chooses the easiest course—he runs. As he sojourns in Brazil embarking on new adventures and a journey of faith, the reader follows him wondering if he will find the Courage to Return.
Dr. Larry Walker earned the Master of Divinity degree from Duke University and the Doctor of Ministry degree from Southern Seminary, Louisville, Kentucky. After serving ten years in the parish ministry, he entered the U.S. Army as a Chaplain and retired after twenty-six years at the rank of Colonel. He was married to Ellen, his first wife, for forty-three years and cared for her until her death from Alzheimer's disease. Later, he served as a hospice chaplain in Columbia, TN for two years. Also an accomplished artist, he has presented his watercolors in two notable one-man exhibits. He lives in Florida with his wife Natalie.
Dr. Walker is a member of LWC. LWC is listed in the acknowledgements of Larry’s book because of the editing and suggestions we offered Larry over a couple of years as he was in the process of writing and revising this book. So I encourage you all to come out and give Larry your support on Saturday.
