Announcing Clergy Leaders in Health Ministry!
"On the day that I was commissioned [as a parish nurse], my Rector preached a sermon on "The Feast of Florence Nightingale"...all about dedication, service and love."
"He reaches out to the homeless by having our parish hall open during the day."
"He listens to my ideas and treats me as a full fledged member of the church staff. I cannot begin to tell you how my ministry has grown due to his encouragement."
These are just a few of the comments we heard from people expressing their gratitude for the support and leadership of their clergy. We will be posting the text of all of these submissions as comments to this blog post. If you would like to add your experiences with a member of clergy who has been particularly supportive of your ministry, I encourage you to do so.
NEHM is making this recognition an annual event, so please be sure to watch for next year's announcements!
Let's celebrate these wonderful leaders in our church and our ministry!!
