Summary A Ministry of Presence Winnifred Fallers Sullivan Ò 7 Summary Summary A Ministry of Presence 107 Most people in the United States today no longer live their lives under the guidance of local institutionalized religious leadership such as rabbis ministers and priests; rather liberals and conservatives alike have taken charge of their own religious or spiritual practices This shift along with other social and cultural changes has opened up a perhaps surprising space for chaplains spiritual professionals who usually work with the endorsement of a religious. An illuminating though very repetitive assessment of the negotiations and compromises that chaplaincy involves The thesis which is clear enough from the opening chapters that you can skim most of the rest is that chaplaincy has become a necessary and valuable role in secular society where religion is resisted but spirituality is accepted and often harnessed for corporate or societal endsFallers Sullivan writes as a sociologist and not as a pastor or explicitly or by implication a believer and thus her perspective is largely neutral and pheonomenological
