KCC Comments on HealthCare

July 20, 2016

Commissioner Stephen Miller
Department for Medicaid Services

275 E. Main Street
Frankfort, KY 40621

Dear Commissioner Miller,

Below is an excerpt from the Kentucky Council of Churches’ policy statement on Health Care:

Health and healing are central dimensions of the faith we profess. Our Christian heritage teaches us to be concerned for the whole person. We believe that God’s purpose is for all people to be recognized as of worth, and; therefore, to be healthy, and to nurture health for one another in community. We are made in God’s image and have value, dignity, and integrity in healthful community.  

A basic theme in Scripture is the intelligent, committed and compassionate stewardship of life as we live in community with one another. Hebrew and Christian scriptures reflect the covenant between God and people in this stewardship of creation and community. … The Gospel of Mark demonstrates Jesus’ concern for the total well-being of those he met. Lepers and “mad men,” outcasts and Samaritans, women and children were restored to health and effective life. The Greek word, sodzo, is translated as “to save”, is the same word translated “to heal,” and “to make whole.” (http://www.kycouncilofchurches.org/council-statements/)
