THE DE­BATE ABOUT health care is rag­ing in the United States, with pun­dits and politi­cians ar­gu­ing over the di­rec­tion of the coun­try’s med­i­cal ser­vices. But, here in Mem­phis, there’s at least one health-re­lated cause most can agree on: “Rock for Love 3” — a two-day, three-show con­cert event this week­end that helps sup­port the Church Health Cen­ter.

Orig­i­nally started in 1987, the Church Health Cen­ter is a faith-based non­profit that pro­vides health care to qual­i­fied, work­ing ap­pli­cants start­ing at about $45 a month. More than 1,300 lo­cal busi­nesses are signed up with the cen­ter’s Mem­phis Plan, which pro­vides cov­er­age to some 4,000 in­di­vid­u­als and their de­pen­dents. That fig­ure in­cludes a sig­nif­i­cant num­ber of Mem­phis mu­si­cians.

Among them are “Rock for Love’s” or­ga­niz­ers: Church Health Cen­ter pub­lic re­la­tions di­rec­tor
