A Meeting at the Edge

A sermon by Reverend Catherine Putnam-Netto.

The world is no longer a place where seas split and donkeys talk, and where water turns into wine. Now, instead of instantaneous miracles, we live mostly in an age when God’s presence and healing touch are made known much more ploddingly… though our hands, our prayers, through medicine and healing therapies.

It was Jesus’ humanity that first touched the man’s soul and invited him into a safe place – a place where God’s love for the man could be heard. And it was then – once the man was in this space - that Jesus’ divinity could offer a cure to the ails of his mind and body.
