Sacramental Whine

Jul 10, 2020

Welcome to Episode 77.

In this episode, I, David Oliver Kling, will be talking about what is a chaplain?  I have been working as a full-time hospice chaplain since December of 2013 and prior to my work in hospice, I completed 4 units of Clinical Pastoral Education as a chaplain resident at St. Mary’s Medical Center in Huntington, West Virginia. 

What is a Chaplain?

  • Good advice for anyone interested in chaplaincy would be to suspend your sectarianism.
  • Does being a Chaplain mean I'll have to do things I don't want to do?
  • Chaplaincy brings up all of our personal issues and creates its own anxieties.
  • Do Chaplains reject academic insight and knowledge? 
  • A Chaplain is someone who reflects theologically and who uses their theological reflection to inform and empower their care for others.
  • How does a Chaplain do an assessment?
