November Chaplains Meeting: Pastoral Care in Pluralistic Settings

  55 views

On November 13, Chaplaincy and Care Ministry hosted our second monthly video meeting. This month we focused on ministry in diverse and pluralistic settings. It was a meaningful time filled with inspiring stories and great resources.

Most chaplains work in settings where they care for people of many faith backgrounds, or of no faith at all. Spiritual care is important for all people, even those who are not tied to a specific faith. During this meeting, chaplains shared their stories of caring for atheist, agnostic, and humanist people. Many chaplains, when encountering people like this, have one-line responses ready for people who say they are not religious. It’s important to be authentic, compassionate, and a good listener.
