Again he entered the synagogue,
and a man was there who had a withered hand.
They watched him to see whether
he would cure him on the sabbath,
so that they might accuse him.
And he said to the man who had the withered hand,
Then he said to them,
‘Is it lawful to do good or to do harm on the sabbath, to save life or to kill?’
But they were silent. He looked around at them with anger;
he was grieved at their hardness of heart and said to the man,
‘Stretch out your hand.’
He stretched it out, and his hand was restored.
The Pharisees went out and immediately
conspired with the Herodians against him,
how to destroy him.
Dear Jesus Way friends
We are very fortunate to welcome Janice Moore-Caputo, pastor of the North Shore Presbyterian Church who will be leading the 5 o’clock this week. She has chosen the Healing of the withered hand passage and I am confident her message will touch hearts and open minds. I wish I was there with you!
Moira, Hannah, Andrew and I are off to visit Moira’s family in Ohio… it has been years since we have been out and we look forward to reconnecting.
Thank you for all your support for Moira and myself. We will be back leading the 5 o’clock next week.
