"and the people all tried to touch him, because power was coming from him and healing them all." Luke 6:19

How many people showed up on Sunday at the steps of a church for Healing? Maybe they did not walk the aisle... and bow on the steps.... maybe they did not sit in a wheelchair... Maybe the one needing the MOST healing was the one in the new dress, new hose, high heels, perfect makeup and a fresh manicure. Maybe the healing was in the heart... maybe the heart was torn a bit. As the music played, and the words washed the soul, how many souls were healed by the touch of the Spririt of God? How many looked for Jesus and found him Sunday? Maybe polite conversation was made in the hall while the sick was dying standing there saying "how are you?" when inside they were rotting. Maybe the eyes were dry, but the soul was weeping?

How do we know? We don't. So, maybe the best thing to assume is that we all need Jesus's healing touch day by day.

Maybe instead of grimacing at the time to shake hands - it is the time embrace and really mean it when you ask "how are you?"

Maybe when you see the tears flowing, it is time for you to Move and put a comforting embrace.

Maybe when you see someone head to the bathroom, it is the time to follow without worrying about interrupting or "missing" something.

Let us seek the hurt. Heal our own broken hearts.    Amen.
