I didn't realize how hard it might be to get back to this blog to write about my experiences. Since this first week was really just orientation and onboarding, I thought I would just write about the entire week. Monday was my first day, but it didn't really feel like it. I got there at 8am as we were instructed. I met three other chaplain residents. The other two from our class dropped before we even started. A resident from the previous year decided to stay on, so at this point we have 5. After meeting these chaplain residents and some of the previous residents we realized that due to glitches in the UAMS system we couldn't do anything, so the director released us at 9:30am. That's right! Day 1 was only one and a half hours. After that we went the entire time. This week was filled with getting badges, logged in to our computers and touring the hospital. I also learned my floors. They are both ICU floors and talking with patients is a lot less likely in these rooms. Most of my work will be with family. At the end of week 1 we were invited to shadow a staff chaplain for Sunday's On Call. I took the 8am-Noon shift. That experience will come with my week 2 report.
I like to explore different things about theology and the life of the church. You might also find things here about me and my family.
God Is... -God is... is a book that takes a look at Genesis and portrays six true images of God. There are many ways we think about God that are unhealthy and even destructive. These six images help turn our attention to who God really is and how we might follow him more closely. Click the Lulu button below to download your copy!
