A Thoroughly Christian Response to Cancer

I’ve tried a couple times to write an introduction to this, and have failed. I’ll make it simple. My Dad, upon being recently diagnosed with cancer, wrote these words at his blog:

I would be much more interested in talking about the trustworthiness of my Lord than about the untrustworthiness of the medical profession. I want this phase, wherever it takes me, to be exactly that platform I mentioned above: a time to express confidence in my God. By that I mean, not confidence that he will remove the overall threat of this particular cancer, but that he will see me through to the best conclusion and, in the grand scheme of things, that he will draw others to his unconditional forgiveness, love and destiny.

I can’t think of anything better to say. Of course your prayers for our family are greatly appreciated.
