Healing Hands

Dearly Beloved,
Grace and Peace to you.
         Simon’s mother-in-law was in bed with a fever,
         and they told him about her at once.
         He came and took her by the hand and lifted her up.
         Then the fever left her, and she began to serve them.

                  —Mark 1.30-31

How straight the energy flows
through his healing hand,
through her hand reaching out to him,
to her hands serving them.

How smoothly God draws us
into this dance, taking our hand:
Yes, you are broken,
yes, I seek you,
Yes, you are needed,
you have gifts to offer.

We who are barely mended
are one with the little man
with holes in his hands:
we are his hands now,
our wounds his wounds in us.

Deep Blessings,
Pastor Steve
