The Grief-Catcher

Is it possible for peace to walk in power anymore? This is the question haunting Comment’s work this spring, and launching this new season of The Whole Person Revolution is someone who answers it with a courageous yes. J.S. “Joon” Park is a chaplain at Tampa General Hospital, whose public social media posts about death, grief, trauma, and loss have garnered a large following.
