THE CHURCH: THE BALM OF HEALING


In the book, The Empowered Communicator, Calvin Miller says that most people we come in contact with are silently thinking:


• I am loneliness waiting for a friend

• I am weeping in want of laughter

• I am a sigh in search of consolation

• I am a wound in search of healing


The Church is God’s salve for their healing. We are "the balm of Gilead." God’s Spirit uses to bring healing and wholeness to humankind–-to give them life to the full.


(From a sermon by Ken Pell, Priests of the Kingdom, 6/1/2010)
