Sunday Words- Isaiah 58

Isaiah 58:6-10

 Isn’t the fast I choose
To break the chains of wickedness,
to untie the ropes of the yoke,
to set the oppressed free,
and to tear off every yoke?
Is it not to share your bread with the hungry,
to bring the poor and homeless into your house,
to clothe the naked when you see him,
and not to ignore your own flesh and blood?
Then your light will appear like the dawn,
and your recovery will come quickly.
Your righteousness will go before you,
and the Lord’s glory will be your rear guard.
At that time, when you call, the Lord will answer;
when you cry out, He will say, ‘Here I am.
If you get rid of the yoke among you,
the finger-pointing and malicious speaking,
and if you offer yourself to the hungry,
and satisfy the afflicted one,
then your light will shine in the darkness,
and your night will be like noonday.

How medical practice changed for me and every other physician in the United States

“Since the late 1970s, I have witnessed remarkable technological revolutions in medicine, from CT scans to robot-assisted surgery. But I have also watched as medicine slowly evolved into the domain of technicians, bookkeepers, and clerks.”

Like Dr. Jeffrey Singer, general surgeon in Phoenix Arizona, so have I. Unlike him, I don’t think the medical profession is dead, but it certainly is under attack, and if we all, both physicians and patients, don’t respond, medical care as we have known it, will disappear.

In future blog posts, I will address some of the points that he makes in this article, and explain how it changed my career. For now, I invite you to read and comment on his well written article.
