Rev. Deborah Coble Wise talks about her mission experience in Greece caring for refugees from the conflict in Syria, Iraq, and Afghanistan.  In a wide-ranging conversation, with Dr. Art McClanahan, she reflected on being a volunteer, how harsh and cold it was, life in a refugee camp, the surprising number of children she encountered, and some of the ways the refugees were victimized and re-victimized in the course of their journeys.  More willing to speak out than she had been before, she invites people to let public officials know that "we care," because "reaching out as people of faith is part of our call."
