"I would love for us to be a people who promoted healing with justice, healing with hope, healing with love and inclusion." — Dr. Jennie McLaurin
Can we learn to repair relationships by observing God's design for healing in our bodies? Join our conversation with Dr. Jennie McLaurin and Dr. Bem Culiat as we explore this topic and their new book.
Let me invite you into a conversation I had with Dr. Jennie McLaurin and Dr. Bem Culiat, two women in science who have written a book together entitled Designed to Heal. This book is a fascinating exploration of the human body’s framework for healing — delving deeply into the science of healing on a cellular level — and envisioning how this healing process can offer lessons for the healing needed in relationships, community, and society. This book showcases each of the author’s expertise in medicine and science, weaves it together with very personal stories of healing in their own lives, and and then fuses this all together with spiritual wisdom and understanding. I love the way that Jennie and Bem are working hard to integrate science into their faith language, and I love their vision for the possibility of real healing in our society. The book itself is very inspiring, and this conversation was rich and joyful. I think you’re going to enjoy getting to know these two friends. You can read their bios below to get a sense of their background. So have a listen! We’re so glad you’re here.
