Talks given to groups on a variety of clinical / social / spiritual topics.

Links to recent talks

In both my administrative and leadership roles I have often been called upon to speak to groups about a variety of subjects involving the practical application of spiritual principles in health care and life in general. The following is a compilation of PowerPoint talks I’ve given over the years, many with associated audio files and handouts. When an audio file is associated, download the PowerPoint (often in PDF form) in a separate tab, start the audio file, and then scroll through the presentation as the talk proceeds. Feel free to access and share these materials with others. I’m comfortable speaking to large or smaller groups on these or any similar topics and am growing into more areas, particularly those having to do with the advancement of the Kingdom of God.
