Introduction to the Annual Report from Lab Director Wendy Cadge

Dear Colleagues,

The breadth of the Lab – both our offerings and our community itself – is one of our greatest strengths. This was especially evident this year in our research and conversation about the supply and demand for chaplaincy and spiritual care. This new video, from our colleagues at Grey Matter Group and Templeton Religion Trust,  best summarizes the opportunities for the field and sets the stage for our strategic vision moving forward.

Furthermore, our program with the Charles Revson Foundation, offering re-grants to Jewish chaplains expanding spiritual care work in various communities, is an important piece of enacting our vision, as are seeing and supporting so many chaplains in programs like our conversation circles.

We continue to make all of our resources available for free, including over 30 new webinars on topics ranging from chaplaincy and the environment to post-traumatic debriefings in healthcare, spiritual literacy, and more this year. We are grateful for your continued support and the opportunity to remain with you as partners on the journey.
