Chapel Rededication Planned for March 17
A brief ceremony will be held on Monday, March 17 at 1:00 p.m. on the second
floor of BRMC for the rededication of the hospitalsandrsquo; chapel. Sharon
Camp, MSN, RN, NE-BC, Director of Women & Newborn Care Center, will
sing “Be Thou My Vision” with Callie Marsh of Salem High School
providing music for the prelude and postlude on the oboe.
The public is invited to attend and view the renovations gifted to Baxter
Regional Hospital Foundation by the Gary Tennison family in honor and
memory of his mother, Eva Kearbey Tennison.
Rev. Tom Baker, BRMC Chaplain, would like to thank the following for their
endeavors in updating the chapel:
- Tom Lester and his crew for their work putting in new lighting, carpeting,
and fresh paint. In addition, special thanks to interior designer Lori
Kauffman for her design influence.
- Rev. Rodney Steele, Pastor of First Methodist Church, Mountain Home, for
his donation of beautiful photographs of the beauty that surrounds our area.
- A andldquo;rose window” photograph on a 40x40 canvas. The “rose
window” is reserved for a circular window, sometimes of a highly
complex design, which can be seen to bear similarity to a multi-petaled
rose. In such windows, Jesus is often understood as the center light.
These windows are found in many of the world's most beautiful and
famous Cathedrals. Chaplain Baker provided the photograph, and Baxter
Regional Hospital Foundation provided the canvas.
- An 11x16 canvas of Psalm 23. A clear decal of Psalm 121: 1-2, written in
script, is also featured on one wall.
- The chapel will also feature a Tree of Life. "And the leaves of the
tree are for the healing of the nations.” (Revelation 22:2). People
will be welcome to write a prayer concern, request, joy or thanksgiving
on a paper leaf and tie it to a branch of the Tree of Life, using a strand
of yarn. Both leaves and yarn are provided in the basket on the table
near the tree.
According to Baker, andldquo;Our hope is that these prayers will be a visible
reminder that the healing presence of our loving God is here."
