A Gaze That Heals and Sparks Joy – Zoom Church

Apr 26, 2020 | Megan Ramer, Sermons, zoom church

Joy infuses our worship and singing together; longing ignites our prayers. Pastor Megan’s homily explores how biblical stories that seem to equate healing with miraculous physical cures, at best confound the deeper and more beautiful complexity of what we know about healing, and at worst cause great harm. At first glance our story from Acts 3 appears to be a transactional healing story (in the form of a physical cure) for one man, but upon holding its steady gaze reveals itself to tell a wildly more beautiful story of transformative healing for a whole community. How might a seemingly simple gaze reveal a path for healing our most profound ruptures, and might we find the JOY in that healing uncontainable?!
