    the nurse with an alabaster jar

    as christian nurses, jesus entrusts each of us with an alabaster jar of precious oil

    ointment, or oil, appears frequently in the bible. regarded as a sign of god's rich blessing, oil nourishes the body as well as the soul.

    congregations facing community trauma

    community disaster strains all of the resources - the human, spiritual and the economic - of a community. church leaders find themselves coping with a traumatic event while struggling with its impact on their church and church members, their lives, their families and their friends. this is a time when the church must be the refuge - the safety net for the congregational community of believers, and a beacon to the wider community, for often the it is the spiritual losses that people first feel and express. in the immediate aftermath of a disaster, when the day is most bleak, questions about hope and meaning are the most immediate questions, and the loss of hope and faith elicits some of the deepest pain.
