of the Apostles: Stories of Faith and Healing
with Eloise Rosenblatt, RSM

Thursday, April 26, 2018

Donation Requested

 

This day is an invitation to re-read and re-encounter stories of Jesus healing people in the Gospel of Luke, and Peter and Paul healing sufferers in Acts of the Apostles. 

What does it mean to be healed physically, relationally, emotionally, and spiritually?

 

Can you be healed as a person but still live with physical challenges?

 

What inspiration comes to us when we remember stories of faith and healing in the New Testament?

The day will include presentation on selected scripture passages, focused reflections, dialogue, guided meditation, shared prayer, and a healing ritual.
