Spirituality and Aging Seminar
Jun 19 @ 9:30 am – 9:30 am

Embodying hope, faith and playfulness in caregiving: Practical and spiritual resources for a complicated vocation

We have all heard both comments portraying caregiving as a depressing burden and stories suggesting that caregiving is a spiritual experience leading to increased growth and happiness.  Surely our beliefs about giving care influence how we navigate its challenges. But what to believe? How can we sort out these differing visions without being lost in either pessimism or idealism?

Our morning session will focus on how resiliency—reflected in narratives of spiritual community, emotional maturity, and healthy interpersonal relationships—can impact our experience as caregivers.  The afternoon session with explore implications for spiritual resiliency in situations of specific need, such as accompanying those with dementia and working toward forgiveness in broken relationships.

Presenter:  Janet L Ramsey, Ph.D., M.Div.

Janet Ramsey is Professor Emeritus of Congregational Care Leadership at Luther Seminary in St. Paul, MN.  Now partially retired, Dr. Ramsey spends her time writing, caring for her nine grandchildren and her beloved Sheltie, and traveling with her husband, Joe.  Before becoming an academic, she was a marriage and family counselor, a parish pastor, and a nursing home chaplain/administrator.
