He is Risen Indeed

Easter falls on April 1st this year, which will be here before we know it. As one of two major holidays observed by Christians, Easter offers an opportunity to celebrate with our church communities, family, and friends, and even more importantly, to reflect on Jesus' life, death, and resurrection.

There is a real risk of missing Easter's significance amidst bunnies, egg hunts, and family gatherings. Even for those who intentionally engage in Good Friday and Easter Sunday observances, the reality is, we can go through all the pageantry without ever truly reflecting on what it signifies.

The Way It's Supposed To Be

When members join Liberty HealthShare, we understand they must undergo a "paradigm shift" in their engagement with the healthcare system, especially if they have previously used a third-party payer. That's why many of our blog posts are educational in nature - we know it takes some repetition and explanation in order for our members to understand and embrace the healthcare sharing mentality.

We often get emails from members who simply want to say "thank you" to our staff and membership community for the part we have played in their health journey. It's always encouraging to us when we hear from happy members, but it's particularly rewarding when a member has obviously taken the time to understand and live out the stewardship values we hold dear.

Attendance In The Hundreds of Thousands

Last Friday, January 19th, members of the Liberty HealthShare communications staff participated in the 45th annual March for Life, held in Washington, D.C. Starting at 1 p.m., we walked up Constitution Avenue with hundreds of thousands of other pro-life individuals to demonstrate our love and support for both pre-born babies and their mothers.

The March culminated on the steps of the Supreme Court, the same building where abortion on demand was legalized in 1973. Ever since then, the March for Life has been held on or around the anniversary of Roe v. Wade to demonstrate that for those who believe life begins at conception, this issue is far from settled.

We're Marching for Life

January 19th is the 45th annual March for Life, held in Washington, D.C. The March is held every year on or around the anniversary of the Supreme Court's 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion on demand. What started in 1974 as a small, peaceful demonstration meant to mark this somber anniversary has grown to become the largest pro-life event in the world.

On Friday, thousands of pro-lifers from all over the United States will gather on the National Mall for a concert and rally.

Interview With Bob Cutillo, M.D.

As part of a new occasional book review series here on the blog, we recently published a review of Dr. Bob Cutillo's book, Pursuing Health in an Anxious Age. Dr. Cutillo was kind enough to speak with us about how his experiences as a Christian and a medical provider led him to write this book.

Book Review: Pursuing Health in an Anxious Age

As part of a new occasional book review series here on the blog, today we are reviewing Pursuing Health in an Anxious Age (Crossway), by Bob Cutillo, M.D.

We live in an age of unprecedented medical advancement, with broad access to interventions ranging from the preventative to the elective. We have much to be thankful for as prognoses improve and lifespans continue to increase. Certain preventions can bring peace of mind to those who otherwise face a genetic predisposition to disease. Pain can be managed and even, in some cases, eliminated.

However, a Biblical perspective on the topics of health, pain, disease, and death is in some ways set against that of our culture.

A Focus On Compassion And Care

In an ongoing effort to give our members a little bit of an inside look at the people who make up Liberty HealthShare, today we continue our occasional series of "human interest" stories.

We hope this helps you feel a bit more connected to us and the heartbeat of the work we do each day. Each member of our staff is grateful for the opportunity to serve you in their individual capacities.

Tim DeWees is Liberty's Chief Technology Officer in the Information Technology department. We recently asked him to tell us about his work, motivation, and interests, and he graciously took the time to answer.
