God has place this wonderful creation in our hands. As U2 sings, "It's a beautiful day, don't let it slip away." We have this one life to live on this beautiful planet so enjoy these reflections on God, faith, life, and music. "After the flood all of the colors came out. It's a beautiful day."

He Laid Hands on Each

As the sun was setting, all those who had any who were sick with various kinds of diseases brought them to him; and he laid his hands on each of them and cured them. 41Demons also came out of many, shouting, ‘You are the Son of God!’ But he rebuked them and would not allow them to speak, because they knew that he was the Messiah. Luke 4:40-41
he laid his hands on each
the touch of a hand
the wiping of a brow
the comfort of touch
when you are alone
when family is far away
you may go days, weeks without touch
the only touch you may have is passing the peace is church

he laid his hands on each
as Jesus moved throughout Galilee
the people who knew someone who was sick
brought them to Jesus
they brought those with various diseases
Jesus laid his hand on them
he touched them
and they were cured

he laid hands on each
people who had seizures
people who were filled with evil
people who were mentally ill
Jesus was able to heal them
these people always knew who Jesus was
they called him: "the Son of God"

he laid hands on each
if Jesus was concerned
with those with many diseases
with those needing healing touch
with those who are mentally ill
with those full of evil
then we who follow Jesus
need to lay hands on the sick
what does that look like with modern medicine?
how do we as followers support, comfort and provide healing?
do we take offerings for those who provide free and loss cost healthcare?
do we support medical missionaries?
do we speak up for those who can't afford healthcare?

he laid hands on each
he touched them
he wiped the brow of the sick
