- Jun 28, 2007Hi everyone,
I've been a member here for a little while but not sure I've ever posted.
Sorry if this is way off topic but it seems to apply to this conversation :)
If anyone (Mark ?) has an opinion about Interfaith Seminary schools (for
example: http://newseminary.org/ ) and ordination as an Interfaith Minister
I would love to read it.

Concerning this pastor and his actions: as the hospital staff chaplain
I would ask him to leave and not come back and call security if needed
(as I have done before if I find a pastor visiting people who are not
of their faith tradition and invited). This kind of "pastoral care" is
inappropriate in a multi-cultural, multi-faith setting such as most
healthcare institutions today. Board certified chaplains today are
trained to work with a variety of faiths or no faith in the provision
of spiritual care. You may read an article I wrote on this topic at
I generally find my work more satisfying the less traditional a
person's spiritual path is. I am a seeker who has found a path that
feeds my soul and enjoy traveling with others on other paths that feed
them. Within Valentinus and Sethian traditions I have found much that
speaks to me and that is currently informing my path.
I will check out your link on angels. Thanks!
