Come join us every 3rd Sunday for our Church Potlucks.
|God sends rainbows after showers
arching ’cross the freshened skies.
Every rainbow shows God’s glory.
Every wonder tells his story.God sends Jesus down from heaven
offering mercy, hope and life.
On the cross he showed God’s glory.
Every blessing tells his story.God sends me forth into this world
sharing love that offers life.
And I hope to show God’s glory
In the way I tell his story.—MaryAnn Sundby
In [the] healing texts, Jesus does not just cure people’s diseases and cast out their demons and then say, “Mission accomplished.” He’s always after something more than that because the healing is never fully accomplished until there is a restoration to community. People are healed of disease, and then he tells the folks just standing around watching to go get them something to eat. The widow’s son is raised from the dead and then [Jesus] gives him back to his mother. And … the man healed of demons is then told to stay with his people and speak of what God has done. In the Jesus business, community is always a part of healing. Even though community is never perfect.
