The Challenge of Change
It is often said that people do not like change, but change happens continually, whether we like it or not, to us as individuals as well as to the societies in which we live and work. The articles in this issue of Health and Social Care Chaplaincy all speak of change in one form or another, and you may find some of it challenging.
