A young African mother

Wider world “One Woman at a Time: A Healthy Africa Begins with Healthy Mothers and Children” by Reed Mc Manus of Sierra for 11-12/2014.  Africans have the highest fertility rate and the highest infant mortality rate and an outline of solutions that help – “empowering women to make educated family- planning choices is the most effective way.” A similar biblical reference: “No more shall there be in it an infant that lives but a few days” (Isaiah 65:20a).




Spiritual health “A Natural Fix for A.D.H.D.” by Richard A. Friedman; a professor of Clinical Psychiatry at the Weill Cornell Medical College makes a case for A.D.H.D. to be a matter of brain function that responds to the new but gets bored with the routine; applies to both the young and adults; NY Times 11/2/14.  Mental health is a significant factor in spiritual health.  A similar biblical theme: “So Jesus took him and healed him, and sent him away” (Luke 14:4) – God wills our health.
