Advancing Spiritual Care Through Research

Transforming Chaplaincy Co-Founder Featured in The Conversation

Wendy Cadge’s article “The Changing Nature of Sacred Spaces” was published in The Conversation’s April 26, 2017 issue. Cadge explores the spaces where people might experience the sacred, a question sparked by the drops in congregational membership in the United States. Accompanied by photographer Randy Armor, Cadge discovered nearly 80 chapels, meditation and prayer rooms in spaces like the Port of Boston, Logan Airport, public parks, and shopping malls. Despite an ongoing decline in congregational membership, Cadge found people excited to share their stories of these spaces, which were designed to accommodate diverse religious practices and everyday needs.
