To all those wonderful mothers who nurtured the children who became our amazing workforce, to the hundreds on our team who are mothers themselves, and to the mothers and children who are among our patients—Happy Mother’s Day to each of you.
Many of our Adventist HealthCare staff and their families will be participating in Passover or Easter services this weekend. My prayer is for God’s greatest blessings for you and those you love during these days of reflection and faith.
At Adventist Healthcare, we are being more explicit in not only how we “talk the talk” but also how we are seeking to “walk the walk.” Our patients and their families deserve this kind of care—and we are a better organization as a result.
We commit to hold ourselves to the highest standards of speech and conduct toward all people with whom we interact, regardless of their condition, gender, race, nationality, socioeconomic status, faith, or sexual orientation—and, as in this case, their age or size.
It’s not the fact that the lamb is lost that makes the lamb important—it’s that the shepherd LOVES that little lamb. And the shepherd loves all of his lambs and sheep in just that way.What I learned from this story, even from childhood, is that every lamb matters.
Sunday is St. Patrick’s Day, a holiday in honor of a man whose life is celebrated in Ireland and all over the world. Set aside the green beer and leprechauns for a minute—and think of the story of the man behind the legend.
