Faith Matters: Healthcare Via Faith-Based Organizations

Aug 30, 2017

On Wednesday’s “Faith Matters,” hosts Kyle Reese and Nancy Broner spoke with their guests about the significant amount of healthcare provided by faith-based institutions on the First Coast.

Guests Diane Raines, Senior Vice President and Chief Nursing Officer for Baptist Health, and the Rev. Steve Goyer, Senior Pastor at Riverside Presbyterian Church, talked about the history and theology of faith-based healthcare.

On the most recent “Faith Matters” hosts Nancy Broner, Executive Director of the OneJax Institute at the University of North Florida and Kyle Reese, board member of OneJax and senior pastor of Hendricks Avenue Baptist Church how the interaction with natural resources can be discussed as a matter of faith. They said most people of faith have an appreciation for interacting with nature.         

They were joined by Florida Times-Union columnist Mark Woods, author of the book ”Lassoing the Sun; A year in America’s National Parks,” and Quinton White, Executive Director of the Marine Science Research Institute and Professor of Biology and Marine Science at Jacksonville University.

A group of local faith leaders also joined the conversation; Rev. Tom Walker Pastor and Head of Staff at Palms Presbyterian Church at Jacksonville Beach; Pastor Phillip Baber with the Unitarian Universalist Church and Adah Shair, Structural Engineer for HDR Inc. and former Interfaith Youth Core Coach at the University of North Florida. 


Monday on “First Coast Connect” we spoke with Save Guana Now co-founders Nicole Crosby and Gary Coulliette, who are fighting against a development next to the Guana Preserve named The Outpost. We heard about Thursday’s OneJax Humanitarian Awards with Executive Director Nancy Bronner and Audrey Moran, Senior Vice President with Baptist Health who will emcee the event. This month’s First Coast Success featured Florida Blue’s Darnell Smith. We heard about Dining Out for Life with North Florida AIDS Network Executive Director Donna Fuchs and spokesman Action News Traffic Derrick Odom. Cole Pepper talked about the week’s sports news. 


Thursday on “Faith Matters,” our quarterly program that addresses issues through a faith perspective,  hosts Kyle Reese from Hendricks Avenue Baptist Church and Nancy Bronner, executive director of OneJax, discussed death with dignity. National healthcare organizations increasingly support medical aid in dying and reject the terms “suicide” and “assisted suicide” to describe it.  The national debate is growing, and six states have now made it legal for doctors to help terminally ill patients end their lives.  Fifteen additional states are considering similar legislation.

As the debate continues about expanding the Human Rights Ordinance in Jacksonville to include protections for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender citizens, what role should faith play in the conversation?

That was the topic Thursday of “Faith Matters,” which is WJCT’s quarterly program taking a closer look at today’s issues through the lens of faith.

In 2012, an expanded Human Rights Ordinance, which included protections for the LGBT community, went before the Jacksonville City Council. The ordinance divided the faith community. It wound up narrowly failing.

A group of 60 Jacksonville teens are graduating today from a program celebrating their differences.

Equal Pay

April 12 is the day set aside as Equal Pay Day.

It’s the day that marks how far into the year women on average have to work to catch up with men's earnings from the previous year.

Despite years of calls for change, the gender pay gap remains in place in the American workplace.

The American Association of University Women (AAUW) is a national leader in the quest for equal pay for equal work.

We speak with Lisa Maatz, vice president of government relations for AAUW, about their new researching concerning the gender pay gap.

Legislation is moving ahead in Tallahassee that would allow concealed firearms on the state’s college campuses. This as a new poll finds the majority of Floridians oppose allowing students to carry weapons on campus. Supporters of the bill argue it would make colleges safer, while opponents question the need to allow weapons in the already stress-filled college environment.

UNF's OneJax Institute will examine gun control and gun rights issues this week in the latest edition of their Civil Discourse series of panel discussions. We preview that forum with UNF President John Delaney and Cord Byrd, local attorney and NRA representative.
