Chaplaincy and Criminal Justice
- Course Dates: Thu 1 October, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm
Explore the particular challenges and opportunities for chaplains developing ministries and/or serving in the police, prisons and courts.
With a specific focus on the themes of crime and punishment, we will address an overarching question: How do we develop compassionate responses to damaged and damaging people?
The day will include:
– an informal discussion on Fyodor Dostoevsky’s novel, Crime and Punishment;
– a participative interview with Martyn Cook who coordinates chaplaincy services as Swindon Law Courts;
– an exploration of the cities of refuge texts in the Hebrew Bible with Jayme Reaves;
– and an exploration of a theology of trauma with Karen O’Donnell.
