Practice & Presence Conference

Duke Divinity School


When Jesus healed, he reversed disorder and decay, liberated people from hostile powers, and restored them to relationship in community. Modern health care tends to focus only on the first of these, seeking to reverse disorder through technical fixes. How might those who inhabit modern health care look towards Jesus’ pattern of healing, and to Christian theology more broadly, to enrich and renew their work. Join us as we explore together why theology matters for health care, and together look to Jesus to renew our vocations to healing.
