Introduction to Parish Nursing in a Lutheran Setting
This lecture by Rev. Dr. Daniel E. Paavola outlines four biblical principals of care for Lutheran parish nurses:
- It’s not the first, but the second that counts.
- God cures with the illness itself.
- Weeping endures for the night, but joy comes in the morning.
- The grace of God turns life upside down.
It also offers a discussion of how to make visits with people in need of care in the parish nurse’s congregation or ministry. This lecture corresponds to the LCMS curriculum, “Introduction to Parish Nursing in a Lutheran Setting.”
