Fall 2017: This issue of the Parish Nurse Newsletter highlights the importance of ministry of presence in the Christ-centered support parish nurses give to individuals and groups.
In addition, read insights from parish nurses and a pastor that provide guidance for incorporating ministry of presence into your care for others.
The newsletter also includes:
- Insight into caring for individuals facing the struggles of infertility;
- A personal story from a woman who ministers to young girls affected by Trokosi, a traditional religious practice found in parts of Ghana, Benin and Togo; and
- Educational opportunities for parish nurses serving across the globe.
The Lord bless your ministry,
Dr. Marcia (Marcy) Schnorr and Karen Hardecopf
