From Thanksgiving past comes a word yet fresh that brings relief, full peace without striving. No more condemnation; just simple thanks-giving. “Where are the nine?” He’s just done it again.  Jesus, Gentle Healer, heart beating full with love for those castoffs, speaks a word and heals the lepers.  His word alone, going forth, makes them […]
