IC Week Eight Title

By Dan Etheridge

Week eight: Healing…

While we know that the coronavirus crisis is far from over, there is some relief in seeing the restrictions we’ve been facing are beginning to change. And this session on healing, will be the last in our series of reflections.

Our reflection looks at two incredible stories of healing from the persecuted church and highlights how God calls us into his plans to heal and restore his world. As countries struggle to contain a disease and as we’ve been forced to be distant from each other, we have an incredible opportunity to step up and bring God’s healing love to a broken, confused and hurting world. We pray you’ll be inspired to do just that as you work through the materials!

So, dig into this week’s material and let us know what you think!

Before you jump in, we also know that during this global crisis our church family around the world are in need. The difficulties that we are experiencing are being shared by Christians who are really struggling during this outbreak. In India, many Christians come from poorer communities. Being on lock-down means they can’t work, which means no money for rent or food. And this is where we can stand with them, providing what they need whilst restrictions are still in place. Please check out the coronavirus crisis appeal here, take on a fundraising challenge, share the link and help your church family around the world. Thank you!
