A message from the President's Desk...
Our country is in need of healing and I believe that as Christians and Americans we, as Parish/Faith Community Nurses must walk the talk of the values we hold dear so that all people will see. I assert, if not us, then who?
A lot of plans are underway to continue to move our organization forward into the 21st century. Opportunities for learning and networking and peer support are being planned and all members are encouraged to participate. In October 2017, we will be celebrating our 15th anniversary as the PNMNY, Inc. Keep an eye on the website to learn more about the first planning date and please consider joining the committee. We will continue to plan evenings for Case Study discussions and Journal Reviews. These forums are intended to give all of our members an opportunity to participate in peer dialogue sessions outside of our general gatherings. Seriously consider taking part in these opportunities to share and learn from your peers. Keep abreast of news and events by checking the Website at least once a week or so. A reminder e-mail will be used for a while yet to remind you to do this.
I am looking forward to seeing all of you at the Christmas Party when we will find nourishment for our minds, bodies and spirit.
At this time I want to wish you a BLESSED Christmas Season and and abundance of JOY
as you minister to those in your midst who are living in fear or in need of something. Keep in mind that "With God, all is possible."
"The Lord will surely comfort Zion
and will look with compassion on all her ruins;
he will make her deserts like Eden,
her wastelands like the garden of the Lord.
Joy and gladness will be found in her,
thanksgiving and the sound of singing."
Isaiah 51:3 New International Version (NIV)
