Title: Are we all healers?


There's no getting away from stories of Jesus healing people. Wine and fishes is impressive if you’re there (and hungry), but many of the miracles Jesus worked were individual acts of physical healing. And as Jesus reminded his followers, everything he did, we also can do (John 14:12).

In much of North American Christianity today, the focus on healing ministry has shifted to social justice and the work to heal the ills of society. But living saints and holy people all over the world do continue to offer individual healing. Is this something we all have the capacity to share, for ourselves and for each other?
