|Because God calls us to care about others:
Missions & Social Justice Team is offering education information about how our faith connects to various social concerns. Each month they will focus on a specific topic and each week will focus on a different faith lens to view that topic. This month is Health Care.
Take Action on Health Care:
– Talk about the barriers to good health in your community. What are the barriers that are personal, vs. those that are systemic? Try to address the underlying issues causing ill-health instead of simply treating the symptoms.
– Advocate to your elected leadership for improvement of these determinants of health: water and sanitation, air quality, nutrition, income, education. (one way to do that is at www.umpower.org)
