It took a year to read the Bible, then almost 9 months to read the Apocrypha. Now, I'm going to try to offer reflections on the Narrative Lectionary. But, I won't be posting daily--at least, for a while.

Fiorgiveness, a reflection on Mark 2:3-5

The man was paralyzed. He could not approach Jesus on his own. His friends brought him.
When they couldn't get through the crowd (a kind of paralysis?), they broke through the roof to bring him to Jesus. When Jesus saw their faith, he told the man that his sins were forgiven,

Questions that arise: Is illness tied to sin? How are ways that friends can help someone else's healing?
