    Junior Doctor Foundations - Episode 1: Introduction

    Junior Doctor Foundations - Episode 1: Introduction

    Welcome to this new mini-series of CMF’s 1st incision podcast, Junior Doctor Foundations. 

    We kick-start this mini-series with six episodes focusing on how to thrive as a Christian junior doctor living and working in a culture described as a ‘Digital Babylon’. 

    Life in the twenty-first century is accelerated and more complex than ever before. As Christians, especially junior doctors, it can feel like we are exiles living in a culture hostile to our faith. So how might we keep running the race of faith despite all the challenges?

    This podcast series is inspired by the book Faith for Exiles. Written by members of the Barna Research Group who have interviewed around 100,000 young adults, it focuses on what we can learn from the practices of those young people who have kept going with their faith.

    To introduce this mini-series are Lizzy Kennedy (a junior doctor based in Devon), John Greenall (a Paediatrician and CMF Associate CEO ) and Felicia Wong (a GP and CMF Head of Doctor’s Ministries).

    Anxiety and the fatherhood of God

    Anxiety and the fatherhood of God

    In a period of exceptional change, it is easy to feel disorientated. Usual ways of thinking don't seem to fit. Normal patterns of behaviour seem inappropriate. It can be unsettling. Of course, the way we each react to new situations will vary. Some feel fearful and anxious, while others get irritated and angry. But is there a gospel way to navigate our challenging world and deal with troubling emotions?
    In the first talk for the 2022 CMF National Conference, Steve Midgley looks at Jesus' command 'Do not worry' in Luke 12:22-34, and asks how we apply that in our uncertain world.

    Ethics, medicine, and the Christian faith

    Ethics, medicine, and the Christian faith

    In this episode, Steve Fouch chats with Paul Coulter and Giles Cattermole, two doctors who have recently had books published by CMF. Both books look at the difference Christian faith makes in everyday life and everyday clinical practice. Giles' book 'Whatever' explores a cross-centred approach to ethics, while Paul's book, 'Serving Two Masters?' looks at how science, medicine, and faith intersect and add to each other rather than being in conflict. In a wide-ranging conversation, they look at the importance of worldview and building strong faith foundations.

    Both books are available from the CMF Bookstore - cmf.org.uk/bookstore/
