So thankful for Samaritan Ministries

In all the grumbling I've done about the health care bill over the last several months (and what conservative, Theonomic Christian HASN'T grumbled about it?!), I do have something to be thankful for. This is from an email we received from Samaritan Ministries entitled "Health care bill update":

The health care bill that was passed Sunday night by the U.S. House of Representatives, often referred to as the Senate bill, contains a provision that exempts members of health care sharing ministries from the bill’s requirement for individuals to purchase health insurance. This is the bill that is awaiting the President’s signature.

While I think the health care bill is ungodly and will likely hurt our nation more than we can know right now, I am so thankful that it looks like we'll be able to stay with Samaritan Ministries despite all the changes in the health care system as a result of this bill. 

For more information on Samaritan Ministries, be sure to check out the post I did about them earlier this year.

What are you thankful for today?

This post is linked to Gratituesday and Things I Love Thursday.


  1. If you don't mind sharing, I would love to know why you are not in support of the health care bill. As a Canadian, I am grateful for our universal health care system, and am baffled as to why any bill ensuring that more people receive health care would be a bad thing. I really just don't understand and if you wouldn't mind explaining your perspective, I would be interested to know.

  2. Just wanted to let you know that we'll be joining Samaritan's in May and that I will be using your name as my reference. Thanks for this update. I was going to check their website for this information but you saved me some time. =)
