For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us. Romans 8:18 (NASB)
It is our privilege to welcome Wesley Humble to Liberty HealthShare and to our Human Interest blog series! Wes was recently hired as the Executive Director of Ministry and Community Relations. This position is new for our organization, and we are excited to see how God uses Wes to continue to help our employees and greater member community grow in grace.

Summer is in full swing! Most people plan vacations for the middle of the summer when the beach is most appealing and the roads to the mountains are clear and easy to drive. No matter where you and your family are planning to go this year, make health a priority during your fun in the sun. Stay conscious of your body's limits, and encourage your family and friends to practice healthy habits that will help keep you safe this season.
Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. John 14:27 (NKJV)
It doesn't take much to notice that the world around us is in a constant state of crisis. Newsreels spit images of war, political dissension, familial trauma, natural disasters, and other atrocities with every release. Turning off the TV or closing the tab isn't enough to block out the turmoil. We experience personal relationships fraught with tension and unexpected hurt, and our hearts can falter under the weight of it all. The world is incapable of offering lasting peace, and we have no sustainable way to navigate the pain.

We often receive questions from our members about the purpose of annual renewal fees. Without understanding the context of this yearly addition, many members contact us feeling confused and frustrated by the extra dollars added to their monthly share amount. There is no need for alarm, and we hope to equip members with the info they need to be savvy consumers both within the Liberty community and the greater context of medical health.
One of the most beautiful aspects of a sunny summer morning is the birdsong. Dozens of avian species have beautiful and unique sounds that greet the early riser. Jesus told his followers that God cares for the needs of sparrows, and you can hear their delight in his provision when they raise their voices. Long before Jesus's Sermon on the Mount, David worshiped God in the wilderness and used the same bird imagery to describe God's tender care.
