Network News - April/May 2018

Spring greetings!

I am most grateful that spring is here and what a blessing it is to have this new season upon us. After a long winter, there is such hope when we see new life bursting forth around us. 

We have been busy working on many upcoming events that we hope all can attend. The 10th annual Medical-Spirituality Conference is April 19th and our second Network meeting of the year is scheduled for May 17th. We are excited about hosting our collaboratively sponsored event for the community on May 9th - Finding Our Voice: Talking About Mental Illness and Equipping the Faith Community. More information on these events is in this newsletter.

We wish to thank everyone again for their caring messages regarding the closing of Good Samaritan Hospital later this year. As you can see, while we are in a time of transition, we are moving on with all our upcoming plans. Should you have comments or questions about the closure please call the Community Hotline at (833) 804-3447(833) 804-3447 or (937) 499-9174(937) 499-9174.

Wishing you continued blessings on your ministry, Sharon
