The current debate surrounding healthcare reform can be confusing at times. If you’d like a Christian perspective on this important issue, tune in tonight at 8:30 PM to a webcast (details below) featuring leaders from my partner organization, CMDA. It should be very helpful in sorting through the key tenets of the debate.
