The Leaves is offering a new round of workshops for 2023!
These workshops focus on Christian Science nursing and are designed to inform, inspire, and engage "sincere seekers" in our region.
Which is the right workshop for your church?
Spiritual Dimension of Care (6 hrs)
Learn how to think like a Christian Science nurse. During this workshop, we'll explore the spiritual foundation of Christian Science nursing based on Mrs. Eddy's writings including The Manual Bylaw and passages from the Bible. We'll dive deep into the ethics of Christian Science nursing as well as the qualities that are expressed. You might just find that you already express the qualities of a Christian Science nurse!
Those who attended this workshop last year reported in their feedback that they felt this workshop was deeply inspiring and vitally important to their own practice, as well as how they view their role in church and as one who can meet the need of those in need of care.
Care Committee (2 hrs)
The Care Committee workshop is a great way to learn basic, practical skills to assist church friends. Usher, care committees, reading room attendants, board members, etc. would all benefit from this workshop. It builds upon the Spiritual Dimension of Care workshop, so that the metaphysical foundation has been established. This is important so that these care ideas do not become merely physical activities, but instead are undergirded by the spiritual truths that facilitate healing.
Ethics regarding care.
Helping an individual move safely and comfortably to/from a chair, church pew, or car.

Hear about the latest happenings at The Leaves' and plans for ensuring the current and future success of Christian Science nursing at our facility. You'll learn about our initiatives, building projects, and ways you can help support the healing work. This short talk can be combined with other workshops.

An explanation of the services offered by The Leaves and answers to questions about health care coverage (including Medicare) and insurance options.
This short talk can be combined with other workshops.
These workshops are complementary and our gift to your church. We've had churches join together and others invite nearby churches as well. We're making a schedule for these workshops now, so please send us a few dates that will work for your church between April 8, 2023 - May 7, 2023.
