As you look at the narrow center panel recall the words of Jesus: I was hungry and he gave me to eat; I was naked and you clothed me; I was a stranger and you rook me in; I was sick and in prison; and you visited me.

The panel at eh left presents Dr. W .A Passavant Lutehran  pastor, who established the first Luteran Hospital in the United States in Pittsburgh, PA. He was a pioneer in the firld of social welfare.
