Proclaim the good news,
           “The kingdom of heaven has come near.”
           Cure the sick, raise the dead,
           cleanse the lepers, cast out demons.

                           —Matthew 10.7-8

You are given power and authority and sent,
not to proselytize, not to enact “Christian” legislation,
but to heal.
In your workplace, in your community,
in your family.
How can you possibly do this?
Because you are given power and authority.
You are given love, which casts out fear—
slowly, to be sure, but it does cast out fear.
You won’t cast out all the demons of greed or racism,
or cure the whole epidemic of loneliness or despair.
But you will love, even one person at a time,
and maybe your witness will move crowds.
But remember you are an empty vessel;
it is not your power but God’s.
And though your vessel is small,
that power is infinite.
Go, then, and peace be with you.
