SUMMIT ON HUMAN DIGNITY – The Search
for Health: Dignifying the Mind, Body, and Spirit
We pray for each other all the time.
We lift up names of people connected to Brophy and out in the world because
they are suffering from illness, receiving treatments, or have died from ill
health. This is a huge part of being in a faith community and we always live in
hope. Let’s take that a step further and
take some time to discover the many health issues our friends and colleagues
have faced are facing…themselves or in
their families. The Board of Health I
(blackboard side) is now available for this exercise of sharing our
intersection with health conditions. Of mind, body, or spirit…whatever it may
be. Simply follow the directions near the board so we can begin to realize the
many ways issues of health have touched our lives. And, say a prayer every time you walk by…
