One Voice, One Vision: Wisdom for Healthier Communities

Techny Towers Conference and Retreat Center
Techny, IL (Chicagoland)

Conference Overview

Wisdom is seeing and understanding life as a whole. Wisdom is gained through experience, acquisition of knowledge and honing the ability to apply that knowledge with good judgement. When professions and communities share wisdom, this ideally results in a common vision. That common vision fosters the development of a unified voice. The ministry of creating healthier communities is an ongoing process in which we are continually growing in wisdom. Sharing that wisdom provides the  inspiration, guidance and tools to encourage and sustain faith leaders, faith community nurses and lay health ministers in fostering body, mind and spirit health.
