My role as a hospice chaplain for the past six years has been rewarding, challenging and inspiring. After years of grief counseling and working with the dying my views on life and living have more meaning. A typical day would include visiting patients, scheduling appointments, Bible study and or memorial service. The workplace culture was diverse. The hardest part of the job was grieving over patients whom you cared for. The most enjoyable part of the job was providing spiritual support to those who were grieving.
