On the Spiritual Care Podcast, you’ll hear stories of caregivers (chaplains, nurses, social workers and many others) who provide spiritual support for people in need – and often in distress. They’re trained to be inclusive, not exclusive. They serve in diverse venues, including hospitals and hospices, colleges, the military, prisons, retirement communities, first-responder services, the emerging field of community chaplains and other settings. These providers offer a sympathetic, non-judgmental ear to people facing times of challenge, unease and sometimes loss of meaning. Our podcast explores the skills these professionals bring to the profound act of listening. The Spiritual Care Podcast is non-sectarian and includes voices from many faith traditions and walks of life. We also honor the many people on a spiritual – but not religious – journey. This may be of interest to anyone wishing to learn more about how to listen and care. It may appeal to a wide variety of listeners: clergy serving in congregations, lay leaders, social workers, medical professionals, theologians, academic administrators and school guidance counselors, human resources professionals, social activists representing vulnerable communities, and participants in other organizations. The heart of the podcast project will be stories of personal transformation, as experienced in the lives of caregivers and those they serve. Our aim is to acquaint listeners with the practice of spiritual care and to stimulate reflection about the stories and information presented.

Wizened, informed, and spiritually fed

When I listen to this podcast I never go away without learning something new. As a chaplain in the Boy Scouts of America and a deacon at my church I constantly seek new "tools in my toolbox" to employ both in my church and in my scout troop. The most recent podcast about prison chaplains touched me especially because that is a ministry I have a heart for but (due to the enemy we know as time) I have not been able to continue to focus on it as I wish. But I feel this podcast was very timely and has encouraged and reinvigorated me. I assure you that there is a legacy podcast in this feed or one coming soon that will teach you as well.

Well worth your time

A terrific new series by the folks behind one of my favorite public radio programs, Humankind. Can’t wait for more!
