Working in Light of Eternity

By Elizabeth Flaherty / August 10, 2021 /

Throughout dental school, I have been actively seeking a rhythm of work and rest that honors the Lord, serves my patients and allows me to truly rest. This became of paramount importance to me because, if Iā€™m honest, I knew this was something I had failed at for a large portion of my life. During college, I watched one of my roommates and best friends observe the Sabbath every Sunday. Blake would be running out the door with a picnic blanket and a football in her hand as I was cramming in last-minute studies for the week ahead. It was not that I never took breaks, but I could never bring myself to take off an entire day every week. Since elementary school, I had always strived for perfection in my work, so it was no big change for me in college to stay up late, wake up before the sun, incessantly check off to-do lists and barely enjoy the feeling of finishing one test before moving on to study for the next one. Looking back now, I realize how much of that striving was actually rooted in fearā€”fear that my future rested entirely in my own hands, fear that this is what was required for my life to be of value and, ultimately, fear that my ability to serve in the future was based entirely on my performance now.

I donā€™t know about you, but I have always been a
victim of my expectations. And the holidays can
leave me disappointed when I want things to go
my way and they donā€™t. When my kids donā€™t come

New Year resolutions that tell me to have no
expectations next year.

Covid Lessons

By Jennifer Wade, DDS / September 1, 2020 /

This new Covid world has taught us things. Weā€™ve learned more about ourselves, our families, our country, and the world as a whole and how connected it really is.Ā  Have you had a chance to be still and reflect on what you have learned during this tumultuous time?Ā  Iā€™ve had a little time, but Iā€™d like to take more and really sit and thank God for what Heā€™s done in the midst of the brokenness.Ā  Once you do get a chance to reflect, write those thoughts down and share them with someone and then ask them to tell you about what they have learned. The more you share and hear, the bigger and more beautiful the picture will be of what God is doing.Ā  Iā€™ll share with yā€™all a little of what Iā€™ve learned.

Preaching to Myself

By Christian Medical & Dental AssociationsĀ® / June 26, 2019 /

Like most of my writings, much of what I have to say is me preaching to myself. Recently I have been struck by several encounters with patients who were either very irritated or irritating. Either way, what should our response be? When someone is being demanding or has unrealistic requests and is upset when we cannot fulfill them? Or maybe they are just plain rude? What do we do?

An Old Evangelist and the Password to DentrixĀ®

By Steve Cartin, MDiv / August 18, 2020 /

ā€œCall unto me, and I will answer thee, and shew thee great and mighty things, which thou knowest notā€ (Jeremiah 33:3, KJV).

Itā€™s hard to guess how many annual revivals I have taken part in or led in 34 years of ministry. One stands out above all the others.

Itā€™s impossible to count the dentists Iā€™ve worked with in the U.S., United Kingdom and Ireland. God has blessed me to know some of His choicest servants in the course of the ministry of dentistry. One stands out who must remain nameless for reasons we shall see later.

Be Open to Godā€™s Surprising Will

By Jennifer Wade, DDS / July 20, 2021 /

If you had asked me my third year of dental school where I would be in five years, I would not have told you Memphis, Tennessee. Iā€™m from Texas, and Iā€™m one of those Texans who felt like they would always be in Texas because, as the catchy song goes, ā€œGod Blessed Texas.ā€ At the same time, I felt God called me to do dentistry for a specific purpose. When looking at my options in Texas, everything felt like it would just be something to do but not what God was calling me to. Iā€™m still not proficient at seeking Godā€™s will, but I was even less proficient then. The Lord had to drop an opportunity right in my lap for me to think outside of what I thought was possible. He had me open an email from CMDA that I almost ignored, and I read a description of the CMDA Dental Residency [+] program that pulled on all the heart strings of what God used to lead me to dentistry. It described working in urban community clinics in Memphis, Tennessee to serve patients with the spiritual love of Christ and physical healthcare through dentistry. It also offered discipleship and a call to expand this vision beyond Memphis to other underserved settings in the U.S. and abroad.

Why do you follow Jesus?

These are answers I hear a lot: The Bible says so. I grew up in a Christian home. I had an experience with God.

But we are told our lives will be more difficult. That does not sound good. There will be a reward, but not necessarily in this lifetime. Jesus is not always a ā€œnice guy.ā€ Do we want to believe what is pleasant and easy, or what is true? Even though I donā€™t like my phone bill, I know it is true.

Techno-Babies: Some Assembly Required?

Science fiction is no longer fictionā€”the first three-parent baby was born a few months ago. Last month in The Point, Dr. Robert E.

As a reminder, the concept of creating a baby with three parents came as a proposal to ā€œtreatā€ individuals with mitochondrial genetic diseases, i.e., mutations in the mitochondrial DNA that lead to sometimes lethal physiological problems.

He walked into the room with a smell that preceded him. Short, thin, with a scraggly gray beard, he looked like a homeless addict who had neglected his health until it was almost too late. But he was not intimidated by the large tumor on his forehead. He spoke clearly and intelligently as I recorded his medical history. When I began to discuss therapy for his cancer, he said, ā€œIā€™ll try the treatment, but Iā€™m not afraid of this. Iā€™m a Christian.ā€ I told him I was as well. As he left, I placed my hand on his shoulder and prayed for him. He then said, ā€œLet me pray for you.ā€ He placed his hand on my shoulder and lifted me to the Lord.

CPR in the Times of COVID-19

Count the Cost: and Spend It

By Al Weir, MD / September 3, 2019 /

ā€œPeople were bringing little children to Jesus to have him touch themā€¦He said to them, ā€˜Let the little children come to meā€¦ā€™ā€ (Mark 10:13-14, NIV 1984).

It was 1984 and the occasion was our daughterā€˜s sixth birthday. My father had become very concerned I was working so hard. Up to 60 to 80 hours a week. It was good work. Comprehensive patient care including spiritual care. Teaching residents, students and fellows in our teaching practice. Performing nationally recognized peer-reviewed, community-based studies. Faculty appointments at 10 medical schools. All was good.

Truth, Grace and Love Beyond the Exam Room

By Autumn Dawn Galbreath, MD, MBA / November 21, 2019 /

In medical school, were you taught to treat all patients with equal care and concern? Were you taught that it is unethical to discriminate against patientsā€”refusing to treat someone or treating them less thoroughlyā€”based on race, nationality, religion or even ability to pay? Were you taught to respect the beliefs of each patient, even while trying to explain how some of those beliefs might be harming their health?

Gratitude Journals and Healthcare: How Can They Help?

By Autumn Dawn Galbreath, MD, MBA / July 20, 2017 /

I am very much a can-do personā€”attacking the tasks in front of me with an astonishing willpower. Weā€™re all like that, right? We wouldnā€™t have made it through medical school and residency otherwise! But when push comes to shove, I am not necessarily grateful or optimistic. I can tend toward the negative if left to my own human nature. In contrast, I know some people who just seem to have been born genetically positive and optimistic. They are resilient in the face of difficulty, always expect the best from every person or situation, and seem to have an easier time trusting God in their daily lives than I do. Maybe itā€™s just the outside appearance, but those positive people seem to enjoy life more than I often do.

I walked into his room with five residents behind me on teaching rounds. We gathered around his bed, and I leaned over to ask of his symptoms. He reached up and touched the cross on my lapel. ā€œI like that,ā€ he said. ā€œI am not depressed. Iā€™m not sad. God is in control.ā€ ā€œI agree with you all the way,ā€ I responded. ā€œWhatever this is, God has you safe in His arms.ā€ The house staff watched in silence.

I belong to an accountability group for personal witness. For some reason this week I was asked to speak to medical students for a series called Inspire, meant to encourage first and second year students to seek joy in their future careers. God overwhelmed me with the understanding that I should share my faith in Christ with them, even in this fully secular setting.

My mother suffers from severe dementia. She often seems to understand what we say and who we are but can never speak coherently. Her life is difficult, and our goal as children is to visit often and give her moments of joy. Yesterday my sister was visiting Mom and told her about one of her friends who was seriously ill. Mom bowed her head and began, ā€œOh Lord, you are the one we come to in our need.ā€

In keeping with their history of producing eye-opening documentaries taking highly controversial societal trends head on, The Center for Bioethics and Culture (CBC) recently released a film on gender affirming therapy titled Trans Mission: Whatā€™s the Rush to Reassign Gender?

Believing God

By Al Weir, MD / July 2, 2019 /

ā€œHe said to his disciples, ā€˜Why are you so afraid? Do you still have no faith?ā€™ā€ (Mark 4:40, NIV 1984).

I settled into a chair in the hotel lounge away from the crowd so that I might catch up on my email, with some real anxiety over the news that email was bringing me. Earlier in our mission I had prayed that each of us might be ready for Godā€™s work of interruption. Just so, an Albanian medical student saw me sitting there alone and asked, ā€œAre you busy?ā€ As he sat down, he reflected on an earlier talk I had given and asked, ā€œWhich level of happiness are you experiencing?ā€ As we talked, I asked him about his own faith experience. He described, ā€œI am a Christian. My mother is a Christian who believes. My father is a Christian who does not believe. I am more like my father.ā€

This One Last Thing

By Al Weir, MD / November 19, 2019 /

This was a weekend off-duty, so I had time to visit a few patients as a friend, not a professional. I had just prayed with two for healing in very difficult situations and was traveling between hospitals. My thoughts drifted to personal needs. A child of mine desperately needs a work of great power. ā€œDear Father, everything else is okay in my life. Just give me this one thing, and I can manage the rest.ā€

Still Fixinā€™ Things

By Al Weir, MD / August 3, 2021 /

ā€œAnd we all, who with unveiled faces contemplate the Lordā€™s glory, are being transformed into his image with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spiritā€ (2 Corinthians 3:18, NIV).

He was doing well with his cancer, so we chatted about his life, ā€œYou know, I was just like those other fellows doing drugs and lying on the sidewalk outside the feeding center. One day when I didnā€™t do drugs, I went to the home of one of my church ladies and told her, ā€˜Do you know I do drugs?ā€™ ā€˜You do drugs? You need to give it to Jesus. Heā€™s still fixinā€™ things.ā€™ And Jesus did, right there. I started praying and I felt this hand on my shoulder. I looked around and saw an image. Then I looked again, and it was gone. And my need for drugs was gone as well.ā€

The New HHS Conscience Rule: What It Means to You and Your Patients

By Jonathan Imbody / June 6, 2019 /

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has issued a final rule that implements 25 federal conscience laws and strongly protects the exercise of conscience freedom by health professionals and health entities in HHS funded programs. HHS had issued a proposed conscience rule in January 2018 and finalized the rule May 2 after reviewing some 242,000 public comments, including from the Christian Medical Association (CMA) and Freedom2Care, which strongly support the rule.

It is endorsed by organizations right (Heritage Foundation and Family Policy Alliance), center (Kelsey Coalition and Parents of ROGD Kids) and left (Womenā€™s Liberation Front). Their stated common concerns are the ā€œnegative consequences that result when society regards bodily sex as irrelevant,ā€ and the belief that ā€œpublic schools should never feel pressured to force boys and girls to sacrifice their bodily privacy, promote unscientific theories about human biology, or celebrate ideas that place young children on a path to chemical sterilization or cosmetic ā€˜gender confirmationā€™ surgery.ā€ I was honored to be one of many who were invited to help shape its content.

Significance

ā€œThe soldiers also came up and mocked him. They offered him wine vinegar and said, ā€˜If you are the king of the Jews, save yourselfā€™ā€ (Luke 23:36, NIV 1984).

Each of us should have a few very special friends in our lives. Dr. Mark Johnston is one of those for me. I love this man, and God has done amazing things through his life, none of which I will mention here. He and I have been serving together in an Albanian mission for Christ over the last 25 years. Mark has been feeling the call of God into an even deeper walk with Him. Not long ago, Markā€™s pastor asked his church members to place on the altar a sacrifice, to give to God something that God would truly desire. As Mark was praying earnestly what sacrificial offering might please his Lord, he clearly heard the inaudible message, ā€œHow about significance?ā€

ā€œAnd he called the twelve and began to send them out two by two, and gave them authority over the unclean spiritsā€¦So they went out and proclaimed that people should repentā€¦ā€ (Mark 6:7-13, ESV).

Beni BaboƧi often assists us with our medical evangelism work in the Balkans. He came to my home the other night and shared with me his early days of ministry. In those days he was part of a team that trudged from village to village in the rural mountains of Albania sharing the Jesus Film, accepted by some and rejected by others. As he spoke, I envisioned the disciplesā€™ experience when Jesus first sent them out from village to village, two by two, preaching that people should repent.

Intersex: What It Is And Is Not

By AndrĆØ Van Mol, MD / May 2, 2019 /

Intersex is a colloquialism for what is more formally titled Disorders of Sex Development (DSD). Per psychiatrist Karl Benzio in an article published in Todayā€™s Christian Doctor in 2015: ā€œIntersex ā€“ People who have anatomy that is not considered typically male or female or have anatomy not matching their genetic sex of XX or XY. Most come to medical attention because healthcare professionals or parents notice something unusual about their bodies or puberty or fertility isn’t normal, but some are not known until death/autopsy.ā€

I spoke again to my friend in the mountains, the one who follows Buddha rather than Christ, the one who suffered multiple surgeries from a skateboard accident. We met up again in Colorado when I was there recently for a medical conference. We climbed together to the Ptarmigan Lakes at 12,500 feet, wrapped in the grandeur of Godā€™s creation. I shared the gospel and he shared his faith in Buddhism.

Iā€™m a Slow Reader (Hereā€™s Why), and Living on Borrowed Time

By Amy Givler, MD / March 25, 2021 /

Iā€™ve read novels ever since my youth, and Iā€™ve had an enduring fascination with the side character of the rich elderly female relative who ā€œtook to bedā€ decades earlier. Even before I was a doctor I wondered, ā€œWhat illness caused her to ā€˜take to bedā€™?ā€ There are seldom enough clues to unlock the mystery of which exact medical diagnosis she had that kept her in her bedroom. Writers of novels one to two centuries ago didnā€™t focus on those clues. She was, after all, a side character.

There were three other presenters: a semi-retired professor whose area of work was in rehabilitation and advocating for accommodations for persons with disabilities, a social science professor and Dr. X, an MD/PhD whose main area of study was stem cell research. I was the lone conservative.

You Could Help Reverse an Abortion!

By Eric F. Hussar, MD / February 10, 2021 /

Like me, you probably entered the medical field because you wanted to help people who were in significant need, facing challenges, and for whom you could have a substantial positive impact. You may have gone in with the goal to save lives. In healthcare, we have the privilege of helping people at some of their most vulnerable points, while also being a light shining into their darkness. For many women, that moment arrives for them after they have taken mifepristone (RU-486) with the intention of ending their pregnancy.

The Purpose in Pain

By Amy Givler, MD / January 28, 2021 /

When my husband and I worked at a mission hospital in Kenya for six weeks in 2013, we ate dinner every evening with another volunteer doctor, an orthopedic surgeon. We often discussed the use of opioids, or rather, the seldom-use of opioids in Kenya. After a U.S. surgery, he said his patients would receive opioids round the clock in the hospital, and theyā€™d go home with a prescription for 30 to 60 pills. Yet here, patientsā€™ pain was managed with non-opioid pain medications, and nobody was prescribed opioids after discharge.

He spoke softly but confidently, without bitterness, as he described how he had been removed as chief of psychiatry at his medical university because he had voiced concern over the psychological effects of transgender transformation. It was he who had built the department from four psychiatrists to 17, and the 17 had voted him out. As I left the auditorium, another physicianā€™s husband stopped me, ā€œDo you know my wife may soon be incarcerated?ā€ He then described a new bill moving through their stateā€™s legislature that will make it a crime for physicians not to refer their pregnant patients for abortions when they ask.

Poblano Pepper Pork

Yesterday was unusual for me in a good way. It was Saturday, a day I usually catch up with charts, or complete work for board meetings, or visit friends who need companionship. But yesterday, after my morning run, I spent the entire day at home with my wife. She wore me out digging up bush stumps in the backyard. And then we decided to cook together. I found a recipe for Poblano pepper pork chops, and she found a recipe for a mushroom antipasto. I asked her to show me how to do it right. We shopped together, prepared and cooked, and then we eventually invited her older sister to join us for the experimental meal. When I lay down to sleep last night, my body was tired. I had worked hard that day, but my spirit was rested and refreshed.

New Religious Freedom Survey Provides Encouragement

An encouraging new nationwide poll reveals that Americans see religion as a core part of who they are and how they navigate trials, that they feel the faith community should play an even greater role in social justice and that elected officials should protect religious freedom.

Those are the key findings of my valued friends at Becket, the phenomenal public interest legal institute that has represented Little Sisters of the Poor, the Christian Medical Association and individuals of all kinds of religious persuasions from Anglicans to Zoroastrians.
