eD 34 A Theology for Chaplaincy: Singing Songs in a Strange Land

Rowan Clare Williams reflects on chaplaincy through the biblical story of the exile, ‘singing the Lord’s song in a strange land.’ What does it mean to be God’s people in an increasingly secular world? And what might the good news for universities look like? Chaplaincy might have the answer.
