At Cross & Crown, the Wellness Ministry program came into being in late 2019 as Judy Hughes, RN, completed the Faith Community Nurse training. Faith Community Nursing is the specialized practice of professional nursing focused on intentional care of the Spirit as well as promotion of whole person health to prevent or minimize illness. Cross & Crown's Faith Community Nurse is affiliated with Atrium Health.
What is a “Water Challenge”? What does it have to do with Wellness Ministry?
This Water Challenge is an invitation and encouragement to be intentional about personal hydration. We all know that drinking plenty of water each day is good for us and is truly essential for good health.
Some guidelines for the Water Challenge:
We give you thanks, O God, for the waters of life: for water that gives life to our planet. We give you thanks, O God, for the waters of life.
Some prayers to spark your thinking:
Loving God, we ask for Your blessings on children, mothers, fathers, and communities who are thirsty. Purify, protect, and multiply their water sources. Strengthen their resolve so they may fully enjoy the benefits of clean water — essentials like education, gardens of fresh produce, and good health.from World Vision
