Chaplaincy Innovation Lab Book Club

Come read and discuss with chaplains!

In response to requests from our community, the Chaplaincy Innovation Lab has launched a book club for discussion and enrichment. Thanks to the generosity of chaplains Christine Isham and Jon Pope, all are invited to participate in these once-monthly conversations. Join fellow chaplains as they share their perspectives on key texts in the field, how they can be applied to the work of spiritual care, and more. The group meets via Zoom and is open to all.

For more information contact Jon Pope (below). You must register for each session (right).

While the book club is open to all, all participants abide by these general principles:

  • Listen to understand, not respond
  • Share space and time
  • Put on a learner’s mind-set
  • Be here, now
  • Focus on what you can control, yourself
  • Choose growth over comfort
  • Tell your own story, not others’
  • Impact =/= Intent

For the Fall 2023 season of the CIL Book Club, participants will discuss Robert Dykstra’s Images of Pastoral Care.
