I’ve commented a recently that it is good to have the opportunity to discuss issues of faith and belief in the public sphere. But the case of nurse Caroline Petrie demonstrates that we need to be careful about the way in which we are open about our faith. Caroline was recently suspeded from her job for offering to pray with a patient and she could lose her job. Read the full story here.
I have a quite a few friends in the medical profession and they all admit that the issue of sharing their faith and praying for them is a very difficult one and they come to a variety of conclusions. What do you think?
