Disciples Center for Public Witness Defends Affordable Quality Health Care For All

Statement from Dr. Laird Thomason, Director of Health and Wholeness Ministries at the Disciples Center for Public Witness:

In the sixth chapter of Paul's Letter to the Galatians, the Apostle affirms both that “each one of us is to carry our own load" (vs. 5) and that we are to “carry each other’s burdens, and in this way fulfill the law of Christ.” (vs. 2). Applying these faith-based principles to public policy dealing with health care, we can see that we are encouraged to practice self-care, but to do so within the larger context of working together to provide for the common good. Therfore, as a Bible-based movement for wholeness in a fragmented world, we join with other people of faith to support and defend affordable, quality health care for all individuals.
