Living Waters Book Launch Party with Ed Waldrop, Sat., Sept. 1, 5 pm

Join us Sat., Sept. 1, 5 pm as local photographer and first-time author Ed Waldrop will be here to discuss his debut Living Waters.

Living Waters is the story of AJ McClellan, born in the Lowcountry of South Carolina. He was raised and nurtured along her creeks and waterways. Tragic events in AJ’s young life tested him deeply, but it was the 9/11 terrorist attacks in New York City that moved him to action. Determined to serve in his country’s defense, AJ joined the Army right out of high school, eventually doing two combat tours in Iraq. He would later leave the Army a broken man, emotionally and spiritually. He lived a vacant life in central Texas until an unexpected death in the family brought him home and began a redemptive journey for him of new life, new love, and new hope.

Ed Waldrop was raised in Charleston, SC, the son of a Navy veteran. Waldrop is an enlisted Air Force veteran himself. He later completed his undergraduate and master’s degrees and became an ordained minister. He served as a VA chaplain from 2003 to 2015, specializing in palliative care and mental health. During that time, he also pursued work toward a doctorate in pastoral care and counseling. Waldrop has worked extensively with combat veterans and their families, as well as with thousands of non-combat veterans suffering in many other ways.
