Being the Spouse of a Provider

Posted by Kristy Tarrant at July 06, 2012
My wife, Adele, is a physician at a secular clinic in northern California. This was her fourth year at the conference and my third. Adele continues her work at a clinic near Sacramento, CA and she always gets so much from the conference, encouragement she deeply needs. It's a really tough job! Personally, I've come along the last three years in part because Adele says I shouldn't miss it. Though I'm not a medical provider, the workshops have always provided a lot of take away for me in the Di... Read More »

Launch of the Health & Justice Project

Posted by Kristy Tarrant at June 18, 2012
(From the Health & Justice Project) A simple story, thousands of years old, inspired us to heal the sick, to serve the poor and to help those in need, so we wondered what today's stories might inspire our fellow Christians to do. With that, we proudly announce the launch of the Health & Justice Project, an ongoing effort to preserve the voices of people from all walks of life as they talk about the inequities of our healthcare system and the impact those inequities have had on their l...

Thoughts on Matthew 25

Posted by Kristy Tarrant at April 11, 2012
Matthew 25 teaches us that Jesus is revealed to us in those who are deeply in need. In vs 35-36 Jesus uses very clear language: “I was hungry…I was thirsty…I was a stranger…I was naked…I was sick…I was in prison”. He could have said “it was as though I were hungry”, but he didn’t. His language is strong and undeniably clear. “When you helped that hungry person, that was me. When you ignored that hungry person, that was me,... Read More »

Thoughts on Matthew 25

Posted by Kristy Tarrant at April 09, 2012
It is hard to miss the commonality between Jesus’ inaugural sermon (Luke 4) and his last recorded public sermon (Matt 25). Earlier this week I was with a small group of believers as we read and discussed Matthew 25 – the familiar allegory of the sheep and the goats.  I often ask those in our extended CCHF family, “is there a passage of scripture or a Biblical truth that motivated you to choose a career in caring for the underserved?” Not surprisingly, this is one ...

A Heart for South Los Angeles

Posted by Kristy Tarrant at April 02, 2012
Looking at data from UCLA about health and health access in South Los Angeles, I can’t say that I was shocked. After working for 9 years in community clinics in South LA, I knew that the need for health care was great. We would turn people away every day, and every week I heard a new story of someone with an out of control chronic illness who had received no medical care for more than a year due to not being able to “afford care” or not knowing where to go.  But this da...
