Abstract
My project is aimed at providing spiritual support to at-risk adolescents. Therefore, understanding spirituality within a secular setting is essential. In an article in Chaplaincy Today, David J. Zucker expounds on the idea of what to them embodies spiritual care, “Spiritual, in this context, does not mean mystical. It refers to the experience of our souls as they engage the issues to which contemporary life exposes us. Spiritual is also different from religious although at times they overlap.” I agree with Zucker in that “spiritual” is different from “religion”, and as a professional chaplain, I understand that I must respect others’ understanding of the Divine. The focus should be to provide hope for a better future by helping patients connect to a higher power.
