Coming This Sunday

February 12: In New Testament Palestine disease was mysterious.  Well before the germ theory of disease, illness for the people Jesus encountered was never just illness.  In the first chapter of Mark, Jesus encounters a man with an unclean spirit, a woman with a fever and a leper.  What gets encoded in the diseases Jesus cured is largely left up to the reader.   Join me Sunday and revisit the story of the Lord, the leper, and the law.  It seems the scaly skin disease is rarely just leprosy in the presence of Jesus. —Pastor Steven
