Abstract

The representation of religion in the media is usually negatively coloured and
stereotyped, emphasizing the old-fashioned, conflicting and violent sides
and highlighting the differences. This imagery is in sharp contrast with the
experiences of chaplains working in prison, the army, youth care, and care
institutions. Although their position is often unclear and under pressure, they
are actually asked for assistance in case of existentially serious events. Usually
clients and caregivers (especially nurses) know when to appeal to them. Opposite
the negative framing of religion in the media chaplains create positive images
of religion dealing with the boundaries of existence in a personal way. Stories
about these experiences can counterbalance the unilateral and hostile image of
religion. Rituals, an attitude of hospitality and common humanity, and especially
the awareness that we share in the same fragility of life appear to play an essential
role. In pastoral supervision chaplains can learn to handle the negative framing
of religion and to tell transformative stories about their unique work.
