Abstract
The United States Government employs chaplains of various faith traditions. Each chaplain is expected to minister within the realm of her or his own faith tradition, but is also expected to work with chaplains of other faiths and to accommodate religious traditions that are different than the chaplain's tradition. The author developed a class to foster greater respect among chaplains by deepening their understanding of spiritual development and show how that understanding affects the practice of accommodating various faith groups. The level of success of the class was tested by the use of questionnaires and a focus group.
