Episode 14: C. James Parker: A journey Towards Self-Compassion

On today’s episode, the hosts of the Hospice Chaplaincy Show, Joe Newton and Saul Ebema sit down to talk with C. James Parker.

C. James Parker is the lead Chaplain with Palladium Hospice and Palliative Care. In February, he published an article with the Journal of Healthcare Chaplaincy entitled “Self-compassion and health care chaplaincy: the need for integration into clinical pastoral education.” He joined the hosts remotely in the studio to talk a little about his journey towards self-compassion.

James has had a remarkable journey from his humble upbringing in New York to serving in the United States military. It was during his military service that he sensed a call to ministry. With a strong support from his wife and children, he pursued that call and his now serving as the Lead Chaplain with Palladium Hospice and Palliative care.
