About Practice & Presence

Are you a Christian in health care who longs to experience your healing work as a calling? Do you believe that the church should matter for modern health care? Do you long to connect your work with your Christian commitments?

One weekend each fall, nurses, physicians, therapists, students, chaplains, and other health care practitioners gather at Duke Divinity School to:

  • Tune their eyes and hearts to see how God is present in their work in health care
  • Engage scripture, theology, and Christian history—open to how their imaginations and their practices might be transformed
  • Grow in friendship with each other in the context of shared meals, conversation, prayer, and worship
  • Rest, reflect, and respond to God’s love for them and the world.

The Theology, Medicine, and Culture Initiative at Duke Divinity School invites you to join us for Practice & Presence: A Gathering for Christians in Health Care, to be held in Goodson Chapel September 13-14, 2024
