Ministering, February 2021

on a wood background are two sets of hands, one on top of the other, holding a red lightly stuffed heart.  Alongside the hands are the words, "Will you seek and serve Christ in all persons, loving your neighbour as yourself? I will, with God's help"

I fell in love with the healing of Simon’s mother-in-law when I looked into the Greek text of this story. I don’t like to preach about the original language of the text, but there are times when the passage isn’t understandable without it.
(In my head, she is part of the story of the first deacons in a way that just didn’t get written down.)

I worked most closely with Mark 1.29-39.
