I write today as I sit in the family waiting room in the hospital for a sister in our church family undergoing major surgery today. I pray today that we reach out and touch the hem of Jesus’ garment, and may we listen for his voice, “Take heart, daughter; your faith has made you well.”
Today’s gospel reading is about healing and wholeness. Touching his hem, her faith made her well. To the two blind men who followed, in their faith they were able to see. And through a community that cared, one found his voice. Faith and following Jesus is intimately connected to being whole and alive. I pray today for healing for our friend.
Let’s pray together and keep walking.
