"Life has a curious way of growing us beyond what we can imagine. After 19 years as an emergency physician, I never could have guessed I would become a chaplain...". read more of what Chaplain Feldstein has to say about Bridging with the Sacred: Reflections of an MD Chaplain.

"In the world outside the hospital, we generally assume that we are in control, that we are masters of our lives, that we are in charge of how our experiences will unfold from moment to moment, from day to day.  At the door to the hospital one leaves these illusions behind.  Step into the hospital and one enters a different reality—one moves, as Rachel Naomi Remen puts it so beautifully, from the land of mastery to the land of mystery."
