In Christ we have a sure hope and as we have met as a committee we have realised we must remind each other about this. God has been doing amazing things through CMF and juniors, but it is often hard for us to see beyond the difficulties we face when our working lives cause increasing disruption of Christian fellowship and family relationships. Remembering the eternal perspective, we've also been trying to find practical ways of serving and equipping Christian juniors.
Junior doctors' conference
Hothorpe Hall, Leicestershire, 23-25 November. We hope to look at 1 Peter with the theme 'Hope in the midst of mayhem', which seems very appropriate. Please continue to pray as we invite speakers and finalise the programme.
Surviving foundation years book
It's been a long time in the pipeline but should be published early in 2008. Rachael Pickering has taken over as editor and the new approach looks good for dipping into. What we have reviewed is really encouraging!
The Junior Doctors' Forum exists on the CMF website so you can post your comments on juniors' issues and see what others have to say.
Thank you for your ongoing prayers. Ben Hall is the new chairperson and his organisational skills are already proving useful! We have had our first weekend away as a committee to get to know one another better and plan for the year ahead.
