Dr. Norma informs us that the equipment has arrived and she is already training on it. Exciting. It is always nice to have things we can touch and feel as part of our process and progress.
The time in Charleston with the two doctors was quite interesting and a bit different than I expected. We did not try to hammer out an agenda before I came but just met together and waited to see where the Lord would take the conversation.
One thing that came up was the issue of epilepsy. This is Dr. Turner’s specialty, and he shared two things. First, there is a pronounced increase in the number of children diagnosed with it, and second, the medical community has a broad consensus that epilepsy is congenital, not environment. There is no credible model out there suggesting that it is caused by any food, social toxin or other outside source.
Although it is assumed to be congenital, there is no solid hypothesis on what causes it to manifest in a family line, since it does not appear to be a typical genetic, inherited issue running in an identifiable pattern through a family line.
So……………………if it is not natural, then it might be….
I proposed to him that I could do an initial survey of the Sapphire family. I have never discussed epilepsy with any of you, but as many tens of thousands of people as we are in touch with, surely there is a pool of people who deal with this.
Some time in the next few weeks, the two doctors will draw up a lengthy survey of spiritual history and social events that we know cause spiritual damage in some people. Megan can format it, and Tim can post it on the web.
We will announce this in the newsletter, have people fill out the survey on the web, then simply go through it with a statistical analysis tool to see if we find any clusters of generational issues that might give us a clue. If so, we can then do a second pass and drill down in those areas.
This was not on my agenda when I went there, but it seems as though we have the pool of people who think in terms of generational issues, we have the technology to do it easily and swiftly, and a couple of doctors who know how to look at physical issues through the grid of spiritual roots.
So we will make an initial exploration of this topic to see if anything surfaces that is worthy of an ongoing discussion in the Body of Christ.
