Faith and Pastoral Care in Modern Medicine
November 17, 2016 @ 9:00 am - 11:30 amFree
Lutheran Child and Family Services is hosting their fall symposium on November 17th at 9:00am. The speaker is Dr. Richard Gunderman, M.D., Ph.D Indiana Unversity / Riley Hospital
The topic is “Faith and Pastoral Care in Modern Medicine”
There was a time in which the church had a strong influence in the shaping of society. This influence has been slowly changing over time and the church is now more of a participant rather than a director. Evidence of this can be seen in the medical field. Modern medicine and advancement of medical technologies are changing the role of faith and religion in our physical care and well-being. How do advances in modern medicine inform pastoral care in congregations? What is the role / impact of our closely held religious ideologies as they pertain to what is evolving in the field of medicine? How do clergy provide pastoral care in the midst of a radically changing health care environment? How does the modern Christian navigate the ethical dilemmas present in healthcare today?
