Sustainability of FCN Practice by Diane Webster
Patron's opening address
It is my privilege to address you as your Patron as we begin this Conference for 2014. I greet friends I have known in this ministry for many years and I welcome people who are new to the role and those who are seeking God's will for them.
Faith Community Nursing is a God-given call on the Church to care in Christ's name and by caring to extend the love of God to their congregations and to the community at large. In that way I see Faith Community Nursing as part of the evangelistic thrust of the Church because anyone who is a carer is an agent of the Good News.
