Imitating Christ in wisdom and courage (triple helix - summer 2005)

A striking feature of Jesus’ ministry is the wisdom he showed in responding to questions and in training his disciples. His example is highly relevant to us in our dual role as carers and trainers. Wise answers When asked difficult questions, Jesus not only answered shrewdly but invariably made capital out of...

Imitating Christ in our private life (triple helix - spring 2005)

Having a pattern to follow is not our only need as healthcare workers. Attempts to follow Christ’s example inevitably fail unless they are energised by his supernatural power. The Gospels record how constantly and critically Jesus was watched, [1,2] and the same is true of those who profess to follow...

Serving, Not Being Served (triple helix - autumn 2004)

Jesus summed up God's demands on mankind in two key commands: 'Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind' and 'Love your neighbour as yourself'.[1] Jesus fulfilled both perfectly in making it his supreme objective to do the will...

Prayer at the bedside (triple helix - spring 1998)

Dr Martyn Lloyd-Jones, the Welsh physician-cum-preacher, once wrote a monograph titled 'Will Hospital Replace the Church?'[1] He pointed out the unique and vital role of the church in meeting the spiritual needs of hospital patients. Three decades on hardly anyone would argue with his view. Even the Department of Health...

Editorial: show God's kindness today (triple helix - spring 1998)

The story of Mephibosheth 1 offers a remarkable parable of God's kindness to us. After many years as a fugitive David is firmly established as King of Israel. His enemies have melted away and his kingdom is enjoying peace. 'God has been kind to me' argues the King. 'Can I...

Chapter 4 - Should Doctors Support the Living Will? (Euthanasia Booklet)

Although the concept of the living will has been around in the USA for over 20 years, there are still some doctors in Britain to whom it is unfamiliar. So it will be well to start with a definition. The term 'living will' has been applied to a written statement...
