Meaning in the Miracle

Dean John’s book, “Meaning in the miracles” goes beautifully into the theology, but as a retired GP i am struck that Jesus wore a rabbi’s prayer shawl with a desitinct and recognisable number of tassles (like a rosary), and that this anaemic woman shunned by all had the strength t touch it in that scrum. thirdly, that Jesus knew someone had done so, and deduced that the healing would only be completed by “outing” whoever. “Straping” like a fighter plane he looked round and round for the person in need. What terror must she have felt when the crowd identified this unclen person! Wow. What a cur

on the edge

The verse comes from the story of the woman who reached out to touch the edge of Jesus’ clothing and found healing.

Don’t understand

“Just a brief touch of faith ...
... on the edge.”

What’s that supposed to mean?

Faith

Having come from a family who didn’t go to church and whose philosophy of life was that you sort out your own problems, I lived and worshipped for years without realising that I could give difficulties to God or ask for help.  It may seem odd to those who read this. But all that has changed and last year I experienced a true miracle in my life, for which I still give daily thanks.

Faith.

Give us the faith to follow you, and see others as God’s children, irrespective of superficial differences.

Acorns

last night, players warmed up for the premiership match in T shirts on which were printed, “Pray for Muamba”. A gesture of support, some might say, rather than of faith but I do not agree. The slogan could have said Good luck or get well but,in fact, it was an appeal for everyone to discover a reservoir of faith that exists in us all, a path, in some, untrodden or only by a few, faltering steps. Already, the survival of the young footballer appears to be something of a miracle. For Patrice and all those surprised by their instinct to pray for his survival, may it continue to be so.
