Are You Spiritually Healthy?

Do you experience highs and lows in your spiritual development? Have signs of spiritual distress like feeling critical or difficulty concentrating? The Twin Cities free NCF webinar Practicing as a Spiritually Healthy Nurse: Thriving Through Today’s Challenges, was led by master teacher, Beth Peterson, in February. This was the second in a three-part series on Spiritual Care FOR Nurses. Watch this amazing video to help you plan for personal spiritual health. You’ll hear from nurses who share their struggles and what they are learning. The third webinar in this series from Twin Cities NCF will be held live May 10.

Tabletop Discussion: The Power of Relationship

Many nurses today feel they are not seen or heard. They are experiencing growing distance in their relationships with others and with God. Nurses across the U.S. are sharing the weariness felt physically, emotionally, and spiritually. Scripture encourages us to not lose heart. How do we begin to address the weariness we feel? How do we live our lives from a place of hope? Join the conversation on March 28 at 7 pm Central as we address these needs as well as the hope found in relationships and the healing presence of God in the secret places of our own hearts.
