    Courageous Conversation about Pastoral Care with Chaplains Webinar Recording
    On Thursday, April 30, 2020, American Baptist Women’s Ministries (ABWM) hosted a Courageous Conversation with Chaplains. Chaplains are on the frontlines of spiritual care during COVID-19. Participants received resources to provide pastoral care and support to their communities. Panelists discussed the ethical and theological issues that have arisen during COVID-19. Since spiritual caregivers are not able to be physically present, participants were encouraged to think more about using scripture and their words more effectively and compassionately. Those in need are not always looking for answers but are seeking companionship, theological exploration, and assurance that comfort will come. Panelists also shared self-care practices that included prayer meditation, maintaining a healthy diet, exercise, and music.
