The Secular and the Sacred in Medicine

I’ll be giving my first live in person talk next month in Portland, Oregon, at the Conference in Medicine and Religion. Their theme this year is serendipitously on Making Space for the Sacred in the Care of the Sick, so pretty pertinent as we begin to reflect on what the pandemic has done to the Care of the Sick.  It has me thinking a lot about the difference between the secular, from the idea of cycle, and the circular recurrence of the seasonal world, as opposed to the sacred which is about the special, never to be repeated time of a life.
