Peace Talks is honored to present this conversation between host Vanessa Sadler and J.S. Park. Part memoir, part manual on grief, and all heart, J.S. (Joon) offers a glimpse into his life as the son of Korean immigrants, as a hospital chaplain at a Level 1 Trauma Center, and as a father. Join us for this tender exploration of how to show up to our own and others' grief.
J. S. Park is a hospital chaplain, published author, viral blogger, and teaching pastor. He has spent the past six years as an interfaith chaplain at a 1000+ bed hospital that is designated a Level 1 Trauma Center. His role includes grief counseling; attending every death, every trauma, and Code Blue; assisting with end-of-life care; and supporting patient and family advocacy. He also serves as a chaplain at one of the largest nonprofit charities for the homeless on the East Coast.
J. S. has a Master of Divinity from Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, completed in 2010. He has a BA in Psychology from the University of South Florida. He also has a sixth-degree black belt in Tae Kwon Do.
J. S. currently lives in Tampa, Florida with his wife, a nurse practitioner, his baby daughter, and half German Shepherd.

About the Center for Formation, Justice and Peace:
Justice and peace come from the inside out—from the overflow of a transformed heart. This belief led our founder, Bishop Todd Hunter, to start the Center for Formation, Justice and Peace in 2021. The Center brings together a diverse, interdenominational community of people who want to be formed in love to heal a broken world. Because “religion” is often part of the problem, we’ve created a brave, Jesus-centered space for dialogue, questioning, creating, and exploration. PEACE TALKS introduces you to women and men who are working to undo oppression, leading to lives of deeper peace for all.
