about caring connections

Caring Connections: an inter-lutheran journal for practitioners and teachers of pastoral care and counseling is written by and for Lutheran practitioners and educators in the fields of pastoral care, counseling, and education.  Seeking to promote both breadth and depth of reflection on the theology and practice of ministry in Lutheran tradition.   Caring Connections intends to be academically informed, yet readable; solidly grounded in the practice of ministry; and theologically probing.

Caring Connections seeks to reach a broad readership, including chaplains, pastoral counselors, seminary faculty and other teachers in academic settings, clinical educators, synod and district leaders, others in specialized ministries, and - not least - concerned congregational pastors and laity.  Caring Connections also provides news and information about activities, events, and opportunities of interest to diverse constituencies in specialized ministries.

caring connections is sponsored by the LSA chaplains' network. the chaplains' network connects Lutheran chaplains serving in healthcare fields across the country. many of our chaplains relate to aging services, but network chaplains serve in virtually all healthcare and institutional settings. LSA also welcomes chaplains of other faith groups who serve in Lutheran organizations. caring connections receives generous support from Lutheran Services in America (LSA) (www.lutheranservices.org) in hosting issues for caring connections and supporting the subscription process.
