I have a stone sitting on my desk that has the word “Healing” inscribed on it. It was given to me at a day long workshop when I worked as a hospital chaplain. We chaplains gathered with doctors, nurses, social workers, former patients, families of patients who had died, and hospital administrators. We were to discuss how we could create a climate of collaborative healing in our medical system. It was a great workshop. Lots of energy and ideas. All of us left that day with a sense of empowerment. We were going to change the face of health care!
