For church leaders and health professionals who are often called upon as companions to those walking similar journeys it also offers important perspectives that will both stretch our own understanding and enhance the tools we need to help those who look to us for guidance and support.
What is healing and cure and what is the difference between the two? How are healing and spirituality connected? How do we move beyond clichés to help those who are in the midst of life-threatening illness to find meaning in their illness? Where do we find resources that will deepen our own understandings as caregivers, and equip us to better meet the challenges and possibilities in this important aspect of ministry?
We’ll begin the program with an interview with David to highlight the various stories he offers as alternatives, and then weave in questions and stories from the webinar participants as we together explore ways to deepen our practice of pastoral care.
