Rick Underwood

Welcome, Angel and Mike and others,

The Oates program committee suggested the topic for this seminar, but none of them felt comfortable facilitating the discussion.  Since I firmly believe as a PRN Chaplain in a large, urban, medical center that the issues discussed here is very important, I agreed to facilitate.  I have chosen an article to launch our discussion written by Paul Knitter, Th.D, from Union Theological Seminary.  Though it is published in a social worker journal and addressed to social workers, I think the issues he raises and his reflections are a good introduction for our discussion.

After a 30 year career as a professional pastoral counselor, I currently serve as the part-time ED at Oates, bi-vocational pastor of a Progressive Baptist Church, adjunct professor of Organizational Learning, and PRN chaplain.
