Spiritual Support Just a Click Away
If you feel the need to bear your soul, a new website can help. Chaplains on Hand offers 24/7 spiritual comfort and support to anyone, regardless of religious beliefs. It was created for those facing illness and grief and for caregivers, says the Rev. Eric J. Hall, president and CEO of HealthCare Chaplaincy Network, which runs the site. You'll find information and be able to chat with a chaplain and submit a prayer request. Twelve chaplains from the Catholic, Protestant and Jewish faiths--and all board-certified by the Association of Professional Chaplains--are available. According to their motto, they will help anyone, "whoever you are, whatever you believe".
To connect with a chaplain, log on to www.chaplainsonhand.org (or call 844-242-7524 toll free). The service is free.
