Cheap Justice, Cheap Grace

David C

I’m a physician that often bridges very dif­fer­ent worlds. Voca­tion­ally, my foci are in inter­nal med­i­cine and pedi­atrics. Geo­graph­i­cally, I grew up in the sub­urbs but was invited and lived "on the block". Eth­ni­cally, I’m Asian and Amer­i­can. Socially, I’m an intro­vert that enjoys pub­lic speak­ing (mainly as a plat­form for ideals). Polit­i­cally, I lean center-left but have deep Evangelical Chris­t­ian roots. Aca­d­e­m­i­cally, I’ve stud­ied engi­neer­ing, med­i­cine, and health pol­icy. Faith-wise, I am decid­edly Christian.

  1. hi dave.. thanks so much for writing this post. (i dont know how i missed it when you initially posted it, but so glad i found it). i wrestled between these very issues you write of.. somewhere between seeking justice, living out grace and forgiveness, and being a witness to God amidst it all. as healthcare workers too, it presented itself in a very real way- there was an excellent article in the Globe about one of the nurses who struggled with this — as health care providers we are called to care for our patients without any bias, and yet as she took care of Dzhokhar in the hospital, knowing full well of his potential crimes he would be charged of.. and questioning her own self and actions, and how people might perceive her (or even retaliate against her).

    thanks for reminding me about romans 5. it really is the crux of the issue.

    hope you are hanging in there during residency. merry christmas!
