The Stewart-Douglass Family Bible Program
Many patients and families have identified that key resource to be able to have a copy of the Bible. Therefore, upon request, patients and families may receive a Bible from a POP Lay Minister, often a key resource for hope in the coping and healing process of healthcare treatments is needed. This program was established by Linda and Jack Douglass, who also serve as POP Lay Ministers. The Douglass’s, who because of their love of the Holy Scriptures and the opportunity to serve as POP Lay Ministers, desired to bring the Word to those in need.
Serving for many years in the hospital setting, The Douglass’s often share their love of God by being committed to their church and serving the sick and often those dealing with rehabilitation. With tremendous respect for their heritage of medicine and establishing healthcare facilities for the excellent care of people in communities, Linda and Jack continue to find themselves serving in healthcare communities.
“Our hope and prayer is that the love and light that shines through this beautiful and most necessary hospital ministry will continue to reach hearts and greatly expand the number of Lay Ministers who will touch the hearts of those frightened and suffering in the hospital room and bring a strong sense of God’s presence to those in need.” – Linda and Jack Douglass
