Some spiritual tools to help you get through this difficult time
Let peace fill our hearts, our world and our universe
In this time of uncertainty and destabilisation in the world, it is important for all of us to find ways to ground ourselves spiritually and emotionally. We also need to help maintain our wellbeing and resilience. Many of you may be facing difficulties on all fronts or be concerned about loved ones.
Multi-Faith Chaplaincy is here to help you. Regardless of what you believe, prayer, meditation, and keeping in touch with friends, colleagues and loved ones, can be of help. Whilst each of our chaplains can help some of you with the wisdom of their own religious and spiritual traditions, there are also many general spiritual tools and resources that may be of benefit at this time.
Here are a few links and resources that you may find helpful:

Do not be afraid, for I am your God’
