What is an Interfaith/Interspiritual Minister?
- Interfaith/Interspiritual Ministers provide compassionate, respectful spiritual care to people of all faiths and people of no faith.
- We support people in finding meaning within life, crisis, suffering, and loss.
- We delight in the rich gifts and lessons of the wisdom teachings and truths of other faith traditions while also fully embracing our own respective traditions.
- Interfaith/Interspiritual Ministers provide spiritual support, using pastoral care skills such as listening, presence, and compassion. We assist people in celebrating and ritualizing the cycles of life, including weddings and memorials.
- We serve the unnamed and named God and are open to engaging new faith traditions that are not familiar.
- Interfaith/Interspiritual Minister recognizes that the Holy is everywhere.
