The other side of stress

Stress. It makes your heart pound, your breathing quicken and your forehead sweat. But while stress has been made into a public health enemy, new research suggests that stress may only be bad for you if you believe that to be the case. Psychologist Kelly McGonigal urges us to see stress as a positive, and introduces us to an unsung mechanism for stress reduction: reaching out to others.

Aus der Schatzkammer – Testimonies

Build hospitalHeilstätten sind ein erfolgreiches Mittel, um alle Klassen der Bevölkerung zu erreichen. Unsre Krankenhäuser sind die rechte Hand des Evangeliums und öffnen Wege, auf denen leidende Menschen mit der frohen Botschaft der Heilung durch Christus erreicht werden. 

[…] ER hat uns beauftragt, das von ihm begonnene Werk der ärztlichen Mission fortzuführen. […] Mir wurde besonders Licht darüber gegeben, dass viele Seelen in unsern Krankenhäusern die gegenwärtige Wahrheit annehmen und ihr folgen werden. In diesen Anstalten soll man Männer und Frauen lehren, wie sie für ihren Körper sorgen und gleichzeitig zum Glauben kommen können. Unsre Krankenhäuser sollen Schulen sein, in denen man auf dem Gebiet der ärztlichen Mission Unterricht erteilt. Sie sollen den sündenkranken Seelen die Blätter vom Lebensbaum darreichen, die ihnen Frieden, Hoffnung und Glauben an Jesus spenden. Quelle: Schatzkammer der Zeugnisse 3 S. 316, 317

Medical missionary work is to be carried forward with an earnestness with which it has never yet been carried. This work is the door through which the truth is to find entrance to the large cities, and sanitariums are to be established in many places. Sanitarium work is one of the most successful means of reaching all classes of people. Our sanitariums are the right hand of the gospel, opening ways whereby suffering humanity may be reached with the glad tidings of healing through Christ.

[…] He has commissioned us to carry forward the medical missionary work that He began. […] I have been given special light that in our sanitariums many souls will receive and obey present truth. In these institutions men and women are to be taught how to care for their own bodies and at the same time how to become sound in the faith. Our sanitariums are to be schools in which instruction shall be given in medical missionary lines. They are to bring to sin-sick souls the leaves of the tree of life, which will restore to them peace and hope and faith in Christ Jesus. Source: Testimonies of the Church Vol 9, pg.167, 168
