parish-nurse-newsletter-summer-2015The Summer 2015 issue of the Parish Nurse Newsletter features articles written by parish nurses and others that share ideas and resources for promoting health of body and soul in congregations and communities, both here in the United States and throughout the world.

Articles are provided about the InFaith Community Foundation Grant, which is used to fund LCMS district parish nurse convocations; parish nurses involved with disaster response; and the 29th annual Westberg Symposium, Joining the Song of Faith Community Nursing Practice. In addition, an article is included on parish nursing in Papua New Guinea, and it illustrates just how much the ministry of parish nursing is needed around the world.

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

The Lord bless your ministry,

Dr. Marcia (Marcy) Schnorr and Karen Hardecopf
