In this issue, you will find items written by parish nurses and others that share ideas and resources for promoting health of body and soul in congregations and communities.

You will also find stories of how parish nurses are serving in congregations, in the community and in the world, during times of calm and times of disaster, like the new compassion center opened at Redeemer Lutheran Church, Hyattsville, Md. This center is a partnership among Trinity Lutheran, Mount Rainier, Md., Redeemer, Hyattsville, Md., and the Lutheran Mission Society of Maryland (LMS).

Lastly, you will find updates and overviews of various conferences and activities of interest to parish nurses.
