I loved your live example of perception check. You obviously were very helpful to that in a relatively short time. You mentioned the difference in the two reading resources. Obviously, it is the integration of psychological or technical tools and our understanding of the spiritual aspects of a person’s struggles that enable us to provide a caring presence. I spent 30 years as a professional pastoral counselor and have been serving as a PRN chaplain for the past two months. Believe me, the same combination of science and art are basic spiritual care in both contexts.
