Chaplaincy practice, healthcare, religion


In this personal and open reflection the author reflects on the part-time beginnings of his chaplaincy. He goes on to describe the challenge of bringing a ‘Church’ to understand the depth and variety of chaplaincy, and how educating students for the ministry of different Christian denominations was a natural and rewarding development. With grace the author describes his own personal journey of change in regard to his understanding of ecumenism, God, life and death.
