As health care providers, many AMEN members are called to minister to the needs of patients on Sabbath. This presents unique temptations and challenges to receiving the fullness of the Sabbath blessing promised in Isaiah 58.
In the spirit of facilitating the use of such Sabbath labor generated funds, AMEN has created the AMEN Sabbath Fee Relief Fund. If you find that this counsel applies to fees that you are paid for Sabbath labor, you may choose to direct those fees to this AMEN fund. These funds are to be used for “the worthy poor, who need medical skill but cannot afford to pay for it.” Categories of use will include AMEN Free Clinics, AMEN International Mission Trips, AMEN Educational Initiatives, and other projects that fit this description of need. You may restrict or designate funds accordingly. Note that it is our policy that AMEN Free Clinics are not held on Sabbath.
