Church Publishing Incorporated
Posted Apr 22, 2024

Available for pre-order now, publishing in June 2024.

In June, Church Publishing will release Blessings For Your Students: Prayers for Interfaith Communities in Higher Education by Janet Fuller, the former University Chaplain and Dean of Multifaith Engagement at Elon University.

In today’s world of rich diversity, university chaplains and spiritual leaders may struggle to meet the needs of their student communities and bring them together in ways that transcend divisions and conflicts. Janet Fuller, leveraging her 40 years of experience as a chaplain, delivers this invaluable collection of prayers geared toward students on a wide array of spiritual paths. This volume will help chaplains offer comfort and spiritual direction to students facing various challenges and milestones, including new beginnings, athletic struggles, loneliness, and the search for hope. Using language that lends itself to many spiritual paths, or none at all, these blessings are perfect for academic communities. They can also be adapted for use in hospitals, prisons, continuous care retirement communities, military gatherings, and many other settings.

“We are thrilled an additional resource of interfaith blessings and prayers exists,” said The Board of Directors, Association for Chaplaincy and Spiritual Life in Higher Education (ACSLHE), “This inclusive, passionate, and sacred book will be a useful tool for countless chaplains.”

Fuller is an internationally recognized model for interfaith engagement. Raised in Lebanon by missionary parents, Fuller has spent her life caring for spiritual lives within academic communities and bringing religious, spiritual, and secular communities into conversation with one another.
