Parish Nurse News
Aren’t you worried about…?
The July OWLS (Organization of WELS Lutheran Seniors) newsletter has just been delivered to our home and soon we will have a bunch to hand out after worship for you to read too! The front page article is written by Richard Warnke, from the OWLS Spiritual Growth Committee. He talks about “the things we worry about” and the wisdom and power of Scripture to overcome the fears that could torment us if we were not Christians. The ushers will hand them out after services when they arrive, feel free to take one home!
The newsletter is also filled with information about this fall’s OWLS Convention, to be held October 9th-12th at the Country Springs Hotel in Pewaukee, WI! Why do they gather each fall? For Spiritual encouragement in our opening/closing worship and daily devotions, Christian fellowship, to learn about the world we live in and serve our Lord through the support of the European Civilian Chaplaincy! The Convention Schedule, a description of the tour to be offered on Tuesday, and a list of the workshops to be offered on Wednesday are all included in the newsletter. The most challenging thing when registering for the Convention? Deciding which workshops to attend! They all sound interesting! Questions about the Convention? Contact Becky Markgraf at 507-354-4403 or email@example.com.
We usually have a nice group from David’s Star that travels each year to the convention and this year we are especially blessed to have the convention nearby in Pewaukee, making it easier for the first time attendee to join us! There is also flexibility in the days that you attend. We are giving thought to staying at home and driving back and forth each day. Contact Sue if you would like to carpool. We always have a great time, making new friends and renewing old friendships made through the years! Your parish nurse is available to the attendees as a health educator, health counselor and community liaison, even taking blood pressures when requested!
Please consider coming to the Convention with the David’s Star OWLS group this fall!
Together as we serve the Lord and his people,
Sue Bolha RN, Parish Nurse
