medicine and spirituality

I heard at the UWA Atheists stall that there are no positive results from prayer and healing. I also heard on the grapevine (aka FB) that there are 1500 scholarly studies on the relationship between spirituality and medicine. So I googled it and stopped at 500. I read quite a few. Apparently the high prestige UWA medical school has heard about them too because they have had a lecturer onto this for a few years. That was enough for me.

“A church that does not provoke any crisis, preach a gospel that does not unsettle, proclaim a word of God that does not get under anyone’s skin or a word of God that does not touch the real sin of the society in which it is being proclaimed: what kind of gospel is that?”

Oscar A. Romero
