A significant discovery made during my spiritual assessment interview with my neighbor was the fact that George was very familiar with the bible and have several significant scriptures in the bible memorized, like John3:16 and Psalm 23:1.
During my spiritual assessment interview with George, it gave me great opportunity discusses and open the Bible. I am excited to say my interview/ spiritual assessment of my neighbor turned into a bible study which went well for the both of us. There was no doubt in my mind that God was present. Matthew 18:20 says “For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.”(Holy Scripture). I would have preferred not to have done the spiritual assessment of George outside on his front porch and not to have been in a rush with time. I would like to have spent more time divulging deeper into Georges spiritual desires. The spiritual assessment of George gave me a means to understand the role of spirituality and religion in his everyday life of my neighbor and his family. I was seeing it as a barrier or as one more thing to add to my list of “things to do”.
I was concern about time constraints, about not feeling comfortable approaching my neighbor, and fear that I may overstep my ethical boundaries as a neighbor. 6. Describe the spiritual experience you had with your patient, family member, or friend using this tool. How does this tool allow you
