Healthcare: Where is the Church?!

With the healthcare debate going on and votes on the compromise bill coming soon, I’ve been wondering where is the Church?

Are we so concerned about possible abortion funding that we are missing the (much) bigger picture? I’m not saying that shouldn’t be a concern–it should–but consider this: what if congregations–even denominations–joined together to purchase healthcare for congregants who did not have coverage? Imagine the buying power that even a small congregation could have, considering the size of most small businesses. Would that not be a better use of shared resources than a large, overly-beautiful building, or gazillions of “programs” of churches?

Just thinking out loud…join me. What are your thoughts?
