Lee, Joy, and Joan,

Thanks for your reflection on the reading and your personal sharing. Perhaps this is too simplistic but it seems to me that a way to summarize a way of thinking about various kinds of mental illness struggles is it is disconnection from self (feelings, physical, stinking thinking), others and our higher power.  As illustrated with the readings and our sharing, the role of the spiritual caregiver team would be to facilitate reconnection in all of those areas. Spiritual caregivers can a play huge role by empathetically listening, reflection, challenging and guiding.

Please share your concluding thoughts as we begin to wrap up our discussion.
