Albany - Finding the words to comfort people in times or illness or death can be difficult. That's why the Southern Baptist Convention and Phoebe Putney Hospital are teaching ministers and lay people how to console patients, family and staff members.    

Pete Sharber said, "What we want to do is to compliment and supplement in every way in dealing with the spiritual elements of a person's life and their healing process."

"We're invited into a time when folks are in a position of vulnerability and great need," said Chaplain Anthony Burdick.

The conference continues Wednesday. This is a pilot program for Phoebe, which will be extended across the United States.
