Second Season Episode 20: A Conversation with Chaplain Glenn Palmer

In this week’s episode, Saul talks with Glenn Palmer on his incredible life’s journey as a military and then hospice chaplain. Glenn is currently a hospice chaplain for Affinis Hospice in Augusta GA. He retired from the Army as an active-duty Chaplain with the rank of Lt. Col. in 2020 before doing a CPE residency at the VA. Last assignment in the Army was as the Chief, Training Development Division at the US Army Chaplain Center.

Glenn is a graduate of University of Maine and the Lutheran Theological Seminary at Gettysburg. He has a passion for incarnation-based ministry which is why he fell in love with Hospice Chaplaincy…which he did NOT see coming i.e. never considered Hospice Chaplaincy until service on the CCU unit during the VA. His military awards include Bronze Star and Combat Action Badge for coming under direct fire.

Hospice Chaplaincy is a nonprofit organization committed to promoting excellence in spiritual care at the end of life. We are committed to the belief that people from all backgrounds, cultures and faith traditions should experience the end of life in a way that matches their own spiritual/religious values and goals. The task of dying is complicated and often confronts us with lots of spiritual, emotional and physical suffering. Hospice Chaplaincy is dedicated to providing support and professional development resources for hospice chaplains, patient advocacy, and education services to the public, to create a cultural shift to inform and transform our thinking around the psychosocial and psychospiritual issues at the end of life .
