Greetings in the name of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, 

As I read this passage from Mark, Jesus' deep love for others stands out. The woman was suffering. She knew if she could just touch Jesus she would be healed. Immediately after touching him, she was freed from her suffering. Jesus said, "Daughter, your faith has healed you." These two healing stories show us that Jesus' heart is for healing things that seem impossible to heal. 

Today, we are called to connect and love others. Through faith we can spread the word of God by our actions. How so? Reread the promise in verse 36; what does it say? Jesus is bringing us together at General Convention to have us be Jesus' hands and feet and to show others his deep love. Jesus shows us, be healing these two people, that this is part of why we gather, this year in Austin, and every three years.

Dear God, help me to do your work with my hands. I know it will not be easy, but give me strength to go beyond my comfort zone and be the light of Jesus for others. Amen. 

See ya Sunday!

Fr. Gary+
