This article explores whether or not it is important that spiritual carers are grounded in a particular religious tradition. The article’s focus is not primarily on the possibility and limits of interfaith spiritual care, but on the relationship between spiritual care and religious belonging and practice. While it is written from a Christian perspective, the article hopes to raise issues concerning the practice of spiritual care relevant to those of other traditions as well. This is an edited version of a conference paper presented at the “The Ground of Our Being” Spiritual Care Australia Conference, Hobart,Tasmania 2015.
