Terry’s global travels include attending a ceremony marking the anniversary of the atomic bombing in Hiroshima, heading to Israel on a peacemaking mission, and visiting Egypt and Syria as a guest of the National Peace Foundation and the Islamic Society of North America, to name a few.
He authored “A Spirituality for Brokenness,” published by Skylight Paths Publishing.
Louisville’s Center for Women and Families honored Terry as its “2011 Man of Distinction,” and he received a Community Service Recognition Award from APPKI, a Louisville-based Pakistani philanthropic group in 2012.
