Healing Ministries and Parish Nursing

Mary Johnson The Healing Church
Healing and spirituality have been central to religious experience for centuries. Biblically a focus on health, cleanliness, and well-being is clearly expressed both in the Old Testament code of Leviticus and in Jesus' miracles of restoration to wholeness. The healing of brokenness, the restoration to life in fullness, is clearly a part of what it means "to be in Christ." Healing and health are central dimensions of the faith we progress and the vocation to which we are called as Christians.

The Role of Parish Nursing
Parish nursing focuses on the whole person to emphasize wellness, health promotion, and disease prevention. It affirms the healing ministry of the church, encompasses a holistic approach to care, and empowers people for wholeness and health - in body, mind and spirit.

Parish nursing is focused on:
  • Health education
  • Personal health counseling
  • Referral to community resources
  • The integration of faith and health
Presbyterians and Parish Nursing
In 1988, the General Assembly adopted the policy statement: Life Abundant: Values, Choices and Health Care - The Responsibility and Role of the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.)

The General Assembly has challenged us "to become vigorous and conscious promoters of health in all aspects in the life of the church, active advocates and agents of health in the social order, and responsible stewards of both health and health resources."

Parish Nursing at Stone Church
