Outline of the 4-week Series

October 18th

Illness—Disability

As we begin our study of the healing ministry of Jesus we commemorate, today, St. Luke, the Evangelist and the beloved Physician. The scriptures are filled with accounts of Jesus healing people suffering from a variety of illnesses and disabilities. This session will examine our understanding of living with illness and disability and the role of healing in Jesus’ context and our current day.

October 25th

Exorcism

A week before All Hallows Eve we turn our attention to Jesus’ ministry among the people and their spiritual wholeness. The scriptures speak of demonic possession and the casting out of demons. Jesus cast out demons and he gave authority to his disciples to cast out demons in His name. What does this mean and how were exorcisms understood in Jesus’ days, in the early chruch and today?

November 1st

Resurrection

On the eve of the commemoration of All Souls, we will turn our attention to that portion of Jesus’ ministry which brought life to those who had died. Jesus himself conquered death and rose from the dead, but the Christian scriptures tell us of occasions when Jesus worked miracles and made people whole—bringing them back from the dead to life in this world.

November 8th

Internship

Jesus’ ministry in the world involved healing, teaching and proclaiming the Kingdom of God to all of us—making us whole and bringing us closer to God. But, he also called us to do the same as disciples. What does this involve and how are we called and equipped to bring about wholeness, not only to ourselves, but to those around us and to the world we live in? How are we called to partake in the healing ministry of Jesus?
