What is the difference between a minister and a chaplain? This is an opportunity to explore an overview of the range of venues for ministry, and the unique interfaith role of the chaplain in institutional settings. Students will become familiar with the global and historical context for chaplaincy, the community circle of chaplaincy, interfaith dialogue and its meaning for modern Pagans. Students will learn how to effectively function in this specialized ministry by sharing knowledge, understanding, acceptance and respect, as well as working to protect and promote free expression of religion for all faith formations, collective and individual.
