As caregivers and care receivers, we know the attempts at conversations about personal beliefs, God and faith in the midst of a life and death situation, are usually awkward and apprehensive. What you say or hear does not necessarily calm the waters of hopelessness, distress, discouragement and fears.
Yet Jesus commanded us to love our neighbor as much as we love ourselves. The choice comes down to one question: As a caregiver, do I love the care receiver nearest to me, enough to want them to know about hope, faith, peace and eternal life?
MajorHOPE respects all faiths, beliefs, denominations and religions, but our focus is only on one, the Christian faith.
WE would be doing an injustice to families in crises if we tried to be what we aren't to all religions and spiritual care givers. We can refer you to your religious faiths and denominations upon request, but our network of professionals and volunteers are Christian
Because we've been there. Our volunteer and professional networks are and have been caregivers and care receivers.
We have worked along side families, caregivers, advocates and agencies, ministries and health care communities.
We know the gaps and frustrations that caregivers face on a daily basis.
Often care receivers struggle with questions about God, their faith and beliefs in times of crises.
Spiritual care becomes a paramount concern as caregivers, family members, professionals, clergy and care receivers try to comprehend three facts of life:
1. Life is short and fragile.
2. The world is full of pain and suffering.
3. Death is inevitable.
that all caregivers seeking God's reasons for why crises occur, will find meaningful answers grounded upon the truth and grace found in the bible
