This week at our church we continue the theme of equipping the congregation for whole life discipleship. There are quite a few medics in our church : Nurses, Occupational Therapist, Doctors etc and so helping our church understand what they do and how we can support and encourage them in their service for God is an important aspect of this week’s service. But all of us engage with healthcare at some level and it is often a very fragile time for us when we do – how can we keep close to God when we do?
So we are going to try and deal with some of the vocational, emotional, political, practical and theological opportunities of Finding God at the Hospital. So no pressure. Looking forward to having some of the medics in the church take part and talk about the politics of healthcare and their stories of calling and some of the joys of working alongside God our healer.
Will let you know how it goes. If you have any resources you think we should know about – please feel free to drop me a line.
