TV it appears remains genuinely interested in the life and work of the church. The BBCs latest offering follows a range of chaplains in Liverpool; U for and with peopleniversity Chaplain in Freshers week and the chaplaincy team in Alder Hey hospital were the featured people in the first episode. Street Pastors and the Jewish Chaplain feature next week.
Chaplains do an amazing work in their various settings. They are there to engage with people, listen to them, encourage them to think about life in allits variety; consider God (or at least the possibility of God), offer support in times of trial, pray for and with people.
The programme was the usual fly on the wall style; it showed the different chaplains being creative, energetic, thoughtful and caring. It resembled all that I see and hear happening in chaplaincy across Nottinghamshire. Worth a watch to see what the great work of chaplains is about
