This pocket-size handbook contains vital information, succinctly presented to enable the uninitiated hospital visitor to understand the details necessary to minister properly in a hospital setting. This includes: the visitor's correct demeanor, dealing with support staff, crisis situations, the place of prayer, the model of Jesus, and an appendix of prayers.

Publishers Description
As Christians, each of us clergy and lay alike has a unique call to ministry. In many denomination s today, lay people are responding to this call by tending to the spiritual needs of those who are sick and dying. Here is a practical guide to the art of hospital visitation for trained lay workers, written by a hospital chaplain with nearly twenty years experience. With Jesus as theological model for lay workers in their ministry, the author presents practical approaches to hospital visits, with guidelines on such topics as awareness of patient needs, ministering in times of crisis, and the place of prayer in the hospital visit. In addition, lay workers will find a selection of prayers to offer in a variety of circumstances. In a handy format that fits easily into pocket or purse, The Lay Pastoral Worker s Hospital Handbook is the perfect guide and companion for those who minister to the sick. "
