Fall 2016: “Tender loving care” is the hallmark of the art of nursing. LCMS parish nurses are no different except we provide TLCC — tender loving Christian care.
This issue of the Parish Nurse Newsletter highlights compassion and caregiving provided through support groups and many other ways.
The newsletter also includes other important information:
- A recap of the 24th annual Conference for Parish Nursing and Congregational Health Ministries, which was held May 25-26 at Concordia University Wisconsin;
- Information about Cancer Companions, a nine-week ministry designed to help those touched by a cancer diagnosis;
- The importance of parish nurses being visible and available; and
- Activities and resources for parish nurses serving across the globe.
The Lord bless your ministry,
Dr. Marcia (Marcy) Schnorr and Karen Hardecopf
Parish Nursing Coordinators, LCMS Health Ministry
P.S. LCMS Health Ministry provides a series of video presentations for parish nurses and others serving in congregational health ministry. Some presentations include specific theology applicable to parish nurses, and some are more specific to health-related topics. Visit lcms.org/health/parishnursing to view past videos.
