Budding spring flowers bring thoughts of hope, but in our secular society we often hear people speak of hope when the phrase ‘wishful thinking’ would be more accurate. Lutheran parish nurses can, and do, bring real and lasting Christ-filled hope to their congregations and communities. This of the Parish Nurse Newsletter examines ways that parish nurses around the country and the globe bring Christian hope and healing to others.
In this Spring 2012 edition, you’ll find:
- “Community gardening provides seeds of hope,” by Julie Neff, RN, Ohio District, Parish Nursing representative;
- “The ‘tsunami’ is coming!” – Babyboomers, by Catherine Lick, MSN, RN, Michigan District, Parish Nursing representative;
- “Christ-centered hope and cancer awareness,” by Lani Walter, RN, Parish Nurse;
- “A pastor’s perspective: Why a parish nurse ministry in our congregation?” by Rev. Dan Teller, Our Redeemer Lutheran Church, Prospect Heights, Ill.; and
- “Why should parish nurses care about the HHS Mandate?” by Maggie Karner, director, LCMS Life and Health Ministries.
