In the roots of many faith traditions are concerns for justice, mercy, and the need for spiritual and physical healing.

The appeal for caring, healing of diseases, and acknowledging periods of illness and wellness is universal.

Religion plays an important role in the lives of many individuals.

An important aspect of living out one’s spirituality and religion is being a part of a community of faith from birth to death, throughout wellness and illness.

Faith community nurses can develop comprehensive, population-focused practices.

The continuing challenge for nurses, other health care providers, and the communities will be to garner government, foundation, and private funding and combine it with support from volunteer activities, family involvement, and community groups to create the unique mix needed for the distinctiveness of each community.
