Overview

God has called us to a holistic, wider vision of caring, not for some, but for all of God’s people on God’s planet earth.

Life has its special moments when everything feels just right. Those surprise outcomes can only be understood as created by divine design, proof of God’s involvement in the critical turning points of our lives. In this book, the author described her personal paradigm shift from a schedule-driven, future-oriented person to a spiritually discerning, living-and-learning-in-each-moment person, ministering to patients of all faiths as a healthcare chaplain.

We all, eventually, face the universal triad of suffering in loss, transition, and death—challenges that are crucial to our personal and spiritual growth. In our personal journeys, we, too, will come upon unexpected turns, sudden detours, and roadblocks in life. How we react to them—with faith or despair—can change the tenor of our existence. The author shares her struggle to provide spiritual care in these moving stories of patients’ fears, anxieties, loss, and inability to cope. The stories, spiritual reflections, and questions will guide you in your own search for authenticity. With faith and acceptance of our interconnectedness, you, too, can experience a greater desire to engage others with renewed hope and love, a helping hand, and a compassionate ear.
