Finding God in All Things
Over 3 days and 2 nights, on the campus of Duke University, nurses, physicians, therapists, students, chaplains, other health practitioners, and spouses will gather:
- To tune our eyes and hearts to see how God is present in our work in health care
- To engage in imaginative, contemplative reading of scripture and spiritual practices of reflection (Consciousness Examined)
- To learn from Ignatian practice of discernment and decision-making and apply those to our vocations and callings as health care practitioners
