When we think of chaplaincy, we typically think of hospitals, hospices, prisons, or emergency services. Those ministries flourish in their different contexts. Chaplaincy is very personal, meeting people in their contexts, and circumstances. As a chaplain, I have understood the need for a supportive visit for those in the hospital, shut-ins, or someone with a new diagnosis or prognosis. Life happens daily and a supportive presence can be very beneficial when challenges arise.
The Lord has a way of awakening us to Him in circumstances and unexpected situations. To sit in the presence of another sharing and listening about our lives and faith is a graceful way of caring for ourselves in difficult situations. As a chaplain, I will meet you in your moments, honoring your faith, and listening to your heart in the presence of His grace and mercy.
