Beliefs Nurture Chaplaincy
Chaplaincy Nurtures the Spirit
Keywords:Chaplain, paediatrics, theology, family, questions, God
The author reflects on over 25 years of working as a chaplain in a paediatric setting. How has his beliefs nurtured his clinical care of children and families? How have his experiences shaped his interpretation of clinical encounters? Bedside questions, he finds, are less about finding the right answer than about exploring possibilities, and wondering about new aspects of God that he, or the other person, have not glimpsed before.
