The Power and the Faith of Restoration

Proper 8B / Mark 5:21−43

Could it be that we’ve already taken Jesus more seriously than that? That we’ve spent 2000 years trying to bring the Kingdom closer? And could it also be that we are far from being done? That there are many among us who need to be restored, both to this community and within this congregation? Could it be that there are those in this room who still don’t feel whole and restored? And some who still laugh and disbelieve? And many who feel both at the same time?
