Share Your Plans

In planning a Health Care Justice Sabbath there is nothing like seeing the actual experience of other congregations. 

So if your congregation has held a Health Care Justice Sabbath, sharing what you did can be a tremendous help to others.   Take a few moments and let others know through this page.

Or if you are considering hosting a Health Care Justice Sabbath and wonder if others in your area have done something similar before, or might be considering one, or might be interested in joining you in hosting one, write a comment below and share a few thoughts on your state and town and what you are interested in doing, asking others to respond.  We can’t guarantee you’ll get the information you want, but God works through surprising ways.

    Several years ago my home congregation in Columbia, Maryland conducted a Health Care Justice Sabbath.  We had a health fair on Saturday with a number of community agencies providing information and assistance, as well as a blood drive.  On Sunday the sermon and Sunday School classes dealt with health topics.  Since elections were approaching, we extended the “Sabbath” to the following Wednesday, when we held a candidates’ forum, asking all the local candidates for State legislature to discuss their positions on specific health care issues.  We were careful to invite all candidates and to give each an equal say, showing no favoritism — it was up to the audience to make their own decisions.

    John Wesley UMC/Health Education Center is sponsoring our very first Health Care Justice Sabbath this Sunday February 24, 2013. We will begin with worship, followed by health screenings and a blood drive.
