the residents and staff have the opportunity to worship together here on campus and I think that helps draw us closer a lot like the saying the family that stays together prays together we share trials and pray for one another and share the triumphs and victories of life so I think that helps make the residents and staff more engaged with one another and have more real relationship a person's ability to pursue their spiritual interests is as important as any other need that they have and we've demonstrated a lot of commitment in that area with the full-time chaplains I was so excited to give the opportunity to come work here at Mackenzie village because it's not a job for my listener it's such a wonderful place a warm place a place that feels much more like you're in a family environment McKinsey has a rich heritage of pastoral care and worship here in our community throughout its 50 plus years of life here in Nashville and so I was excited to come and be part of that and I enjoyed the worshiping community I enjoy what I get to do I tell people I'm as much a local church pastor as I am a clinical chaplain because we have such a connected community around our spiritual life here in McHenry the chaplain here is is absolutely wonderful and he just seems to have a personal touch for all of us it's not a particular denomination so everybody certainly has a place to be there and enjoy Christian Fellowship there so many of them have gotten to the point where it's difficult for them to get to their places of worship and so here it's within you know the chaplain is having services a couple times a week right here in our chapel which is a walk away from their apartment so that's I think what what Mackendrick could bring to them in their sect as the director of pastoral care I'm responsible for the spiritual will be in the life of our community both residents and staff and so my work involves working with our chaplains to help them to provide pastoral care and also as a worship leader in our community and all of this is important because here at McKendree we think holistic care is important in people's spiritual being is an important part of who they are but the opportunities for worship in the chapel here definitely on Sunday morning and Wednesday there is a service also it's important to be able to continue your affiliation with the congregation and and I think we have a field that the people who participate in them of our congregation and it's important to do that you
