Lent 4 – Different Boats – Jesus Heals Two “Daughters”

On this fourth Sunday in Lent, we read the intertwined stories of Jesus healing two “daughters”, one a woman with a physically draining and socially isolating 12 year flow of blood, and the other a 12 year old girl.  (Matthew 9:18-26)  With their differing social situations, these two women are not in the same boat, but they are in the same storm of illness and mortality.  As we emerge from this long pandemic, may we look to Jesus for healing, inspiration and new life.

In Christ, Ernie
