This Sunday we will continue in our sermon series: Five Miracles We Can Experience Every Day. The sermon this Sunday: Healing Desperate Loneliness through… The Power of Slowing Down, will focus on Jesus’ healing of a woman who had been sick and isolated for 12 long years.
Check out the story in Mark 5: 21 – 43. As you reading through the miracle story, ask yourself these questions – which we will chat about on Sunday.
- What does the word ‘mashed’ mean? How would you use that word in a sentence?
- The woman in the story had been isolated from society for 12 years. How do you think that isolation might have affected her?
- What might have motivated this woman to reach her hand out and touch Jesus? How do you think she must have felt when Jesus stopped everything and asked: “Who touched me?”
- Think of one lonely soul in your life who might find healing from you slowing down enough to spend time with her or him.
