Healthy Hearts

Advice from the Parish Nurse

Walk and Talk is a Bible study and devotional that is specifically designed to be used while you walk with a friend, with a member of your congregation, or by yourself. The primary objective of Walk and Talk is to help communities incorporate healthy habits into their lives of faith through physical movement and spiritual enrichment. Just as Jesus taught his disciples on the road, we believe that God speaks to us as we Walk and Talk. Each month is a different theme. The book can be purchased for $10.00. Contact Judi Thompson if interested in beginning the yearlong journey. You can begin now or jump in at any time. A sample of a week’s questions for discussion or pondering will be posted on the Parish Nurse bulletin board.



Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil.  For if they fall, one will lift up the other; but woe to one who is alone and falls and does not have another to help.  Again, if two lie together, they keep warm; but how can one keep warn alone?  And though one might prevail against another, two will withstand one.  A threefold cord is not quickly broken.  

— Ecclesiates 4:9-12 


Ecclesiastes reminds us of the great strength of our relationships.  When we join together, we are much more capable of achieving our goals and inspiring our communities.  This month we will focus on the importance of relying on others for encouragement and reaching out to our communities.
