THE 7TH ANNUAL
Richard H. Fitzgerald Lecture in Pastoral Education
This workshop will explore the balance and tension of time that we encounter daily in the healthcare environment. We are often challenged to work within the important and needed culture of measuring time where every second counts as someone is being tended too, which we must balance with the experience of finding meaning and purpose. We will discuss how to appreciate the human constraint of time and still tend to the unexpected moments of human encounters of care, kindness and attentiveness.
