“If only.” “It can’t be that easy.” “What if I just did something simple.” Jesus connected with people who had faith that a simple touch, of his clothes or his hand, could heal them. As Methodists, we value reason and science, and just as importantly, faith. We all need healing in some way, so today we consider our faith, our simple touch to Jesus.
Our services are now being held with in-person attendance, at 10 a.m. Sunday morning. Today’s service is provided below in its entirety in video format.
Our Scripture Reading is from Mark 5:21-43 (NRSV). The book of Mark reads like an action adventure, going from one exciting situation to another. Here, Jesus has just finished dealing with an horrific exorcism. He crosses the seat in a boat, and is met on the other side by yet another crowd. Here he experiences two situations (a story within a story) that illustrate great faith of people in need.
Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is the one true Church whose faith we support with our prayers, our presence, our giving, our witness and our service.
Our offering is given to the mission and ministry of MHUMC. Remember our gifts come from us, as the people of God, for the work of God, to the Glory of God in the world.
Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is the one true Church whose faith we support with our prayers, our presence, our giving, our witness and our service. I invite you to give generously, as we worship God through sharing our gifts, tithes, and offerings.
The message today from Pastor Linda Holbrook is “A Simple Touch.”
