Gratitude

I’m grateful that I can stay connected to TMC lectures even though I’ve graduated and moving away! Thanks!

So enjoyable and necessary today

Whenever new talks come out, especially by Barfield, I get excited! I love hearing such an intellectual yet profound discourse on faith and medicine’s intersections. Only thing I would maybe call for are more LGBTQ+ physicians and theologians as speakers.
