“Healing is an indispensable part of the coming wholeness that God intends for all creation.”   — John Koenig

The practice of healing is a central part of the reconciling activity of God in the world. Healing events are daily signs of the divine mercy that is surging through the world and guiding it toward its final perfection. This is true whether they take place by the sharing of chicken soup, the performance of delicate surgery, or the laying on of hands in a service of worship. Illness, injury, and psychological distress dog virtually our every step. Serious illness brings us to where life and death meet. What do we mean by “healing”? Is it the same thing as being cured? What is the difference between a cure and wholeness?  Read more about the Christian practice of healing here.
