Dr. Raymond Lawrence, General Secretary of CPSP, joined us at the headquarters of CPSP-Philippines, at Bukal Life Care, in Baguio City, October 13-16. On the 14th and 15th, we held our Annual Case Conference. We had approximately 25 people attend, mostly from Baguio, but we were blessed with some attendees from Manila and Bulacan. We had 8 cases presented to the group for review as well as two mini-lectures (one on the history of clinical pastoral care, and the other on the differences between religious pastoral care, and clinical pastoral care).
On the last night, we were able to have a meeting of CPSP-Philippines with Doc Raymond and Charlie Spruell. We have good news from that meeting, but we will save that for another post.
Much thanks to Philippine Baptist Theological Seminary, for providing the Conference Room for our use. Also thanks to a donor who graciously took care of Raymond and Charlie at the Baguio Country Club, as well as the CPSP-Philippines meeting. Such as nice way to start Pastoral Care Week (October 16-22)
