The College of Pastoral Supervision & Psychotherapy is a theologically based covenant community, dedicated to "recovery of the soul" and promoting competency in the clinical pastoral field.
NPR StoryCorps has been one on my favorite NPR offerings through the years. These are brief but yet powerful conversations between two loved ones who engage in an intimate conversation that is both profound and humanely heart touching with poignant moments that touch the soul of the listeners.
NPR is now challenging us to move beyond observers to participants. They are declaring a National Day of Listening for November 28, 2008. What this means to us is that we gather at least once significant person in our lives to have a recorded conversation using audio or video that becomes a treasure to share, even with future generations. You will find on the NPR website ample information and guidance as to how to participate in this event.
In addition to the profoundly personal, I also think the provided resources will be informative to those who are clinical chaplains and training supervisors in their clinical practice. If so, share how you have made use of this very special encouragement to have intimate and soulful conversations with those who have moved our hearts and touched our lives in such a way that we will never be the same.
