Brief Note: Chaplaincy

We have all experienced those meetings where we go around the room, announcing our name and title or department. Every employee sees me in orientation, talking about my work and ouwr program for spiritual care. And often, since my collar tells most folks my title, in meetings I will introduce myself as responsible for “celestial engineering,” or “metaphysical medicine and rehabilitation” – or, since I'm in an Episcopal hospital and I’m an Episcopal priest, as “the owner’s rep.” (Interesting thing about that title is that they smile, but they also pay attention.)
