This was the 5th Sunday after Epiphany and the Gospel was from Mark 1:29-39 where we hear Mark tell of Jesus healing people wherever He goes.
The essence of everything is in today’s text.
Pastor Eric feels it captures the mystery of our Faith because it is the intimate Jesus lifting us up.
Jesus goes ahead of us and then meets us on our journey through life.
Sometimes we want miracles and healing to be Big, and sometimes they are, but more often it is just reaching out and touching someone who needs to be touched.
