Sunday School has continued its momentum under the fearless leadership of Jill Hunter, Carla Ewing and Marion Price. One special highlight was when our kids learned about Jesus’ healing ministry. The “Threads” take home sheet for this lesson did a good job once again of relating these stories to our identity as Episcopalians for our kids...
“Episcopalians take a holistic approach to healing. We ask for healing, not curing, knowing that God’s way of healing may not be our way. When confused about what to ask for, we often say, “We entrust all who are dear to us to your never-failing care and love…knowing that you are doing for them better things than we can desire or pray for…” (BCP, p. 831).”
We continue this healing ministry through healing prayer during Communion by lay members of our congregation and visits by our clergy to parishioners at home or in the hospital. Our Archangels made cards during class as seen in the pictures above for our church's healing mnistry. These cards will be distributed by the clergy when they visit parishioners and is our small way of continuing Jesus’ work.
