Spiritual Issues: The Big Questions in Life

How can this happen to me? What is life? Why has God abandoned me? Illness can provoke painful feelings, profound questions—and an insatiable quest for answers. Viewers will walk away from this program with the knowledge that they are not alone in their questions or their feelings: fear, abandonment, hopelessness and anger are common reactions to serious or chronic illness or end of life. Professional multi-faith chaplains empower them to dig deeply and embrace various methods for healing. As well, several patients share their inspirational journeys of how they found comfort and meaning, and respite from the storm. “We don’t know why. That’s the part chaplains explore with people: the why…” (Rev. Jill Bowden, Chaplain)
