Learn More About Our TMC Seminar Series


“TMC offers you a chance to walk with fellow healers, weary amidst their good work, eager to recognize Christ in the bodies of the sick, and the mystery, burden, joy, demand, and hope of that work—that love and witness and joy need not be scarce in the practice of medicine as a Christian. We offer you a shared life in communion with other medical workers, soul-nourishing conversation, integrative practices, encounters with beauty, and an opportunity to reflect and investigate together the long work of healing.”
