Who is this man?

Evening folks,

Just thought that I'd give you a heads up... One of the readings on Sunday is from Mark 5:21-43 and it deals with two amazing events in Jesus' early ministry.

Firstly a woman who has suffered from severe haemorrhages for many many years came to Jesus to seek healing - healing that the doctors of the day could not provide. And she was healed.

Secondly, the story of the rasing to life of Jairus' daughter, who had died.

Both passages speak powerfully of who Jesus is. He is not just another Rabbi, not just another religious teach, not just some other messianic nut job. The power of God that brought all things into being at the first moment of creation, is clearly at work in the man Jesus of Nazareth.

The question the crowds are left asking is - who is this man? *Really*, who is he?

It's the same question that we will be exploring in our services on Sunday. At 10am, as we are talking of healing, the opportunity to receive prayer for yourself or others as you ask the same question, or to receive the ministry of laying on of hands and annointing with holy oil for healing will be on offer for you or others known to you.

It should be a special time. Come and join us. Come expecting to meet with God. Come with your hopes and fears, your doubts and yearnings and come with open hands and an open heart to meet with each other and with the same God who was at work in Jesus.

See you Sunday!
