One Great Hour of Sharing

Paul's letters remind us as members of the church, we are so closely connected, we can think of ourselves as parts of one body, as a family-brothers and sisters. Our church lives this out when someone is ill, mourning, or facing a crisis. We show up. We show that love in tangible ways, with casseroles and cards, hugs, and spoken words of prayer. These acts of kindness let our brothers and sisters in Christ know that we are present with them. They know that they are not forgotten in their times of trouble.

Is Healthcare a privilege or a right?

Our Lenten preaching series follows Jesus as he travels through his short life. We began in Bethlehem at his birth, and moved to Nazareth, where he spent much of his life. Last Sunday he was baptized in the Jordan River, and this week he will begin his ministry in Galilee. As Jesus begins his ministry, it isn't too long until we see how important good health is to Jesus. In his very short career in ministry Jesus is recorded in the Bible doing 31 healings. The healings cover a wide range of infirmities. He heals people who are blind, people with demons, a woman who had bleeding issues, a son with epilepsy, people who were ostracized with leprosy, and even someone with arthritis. Not once, in any of these healings does Jesus require those healed to give something to him. He gives the gift of health freely, without requiring anything in return.  He restores health to individuals, and by extension we also hear of healthy families.
