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…

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…
