The shortage of medical isotopes caused by the shut down of a Canadian nuclear facility which supplies a good portion of the world with these isotopes represents bungling at the highest level. How such a thing could happen without a backup plan is inconceivable when so many people depend on these substances to diagnosis or treat life-threatening conditions. Somewhere along the line, perhaps at many places, someone has dropped the ball and now it is going to take creativity and hard work to get things up and running again so that the backlog can be cleared up and the system function as it should.
Organizations and systems are only as good as the people who operate within them. While I think it can be shown that some forms of government and organizational structure are better than others, good people can make inefficient and defective systems work and bad people can ruin an otherwise sound plan.
This observation should be sufficient to keep us from trusting in the right technique when it comes to the church and Christian organizations. More important that how anyone else is "doing it" is our relationship with the Lord. If we are right with God and we are are growing in his grace he will give us the wisdom and the strength to get the job done. There is simply no way to make up for those who are not focused on the task at hand as the medical isotope disaster shows. We need to do what we are given as best we can seeing all our lives as worship and seeking to bring glory to God in all that we do. In this way we will avoid the mismanagement and short-sightedness that has crippled a once proud and productive nuclear medical program.
