Where: Fifth Avenue Presbyterian Church at 10am

Bible reading:

“21 And when Jesus was passed over again by ship unto the other side, much people gathered unto him: and he was nigh unto the sea. 22 And, behold, there cometh one of the rulers of the synagogue, Jairus by name; and when he saw him, he fell at his feet, 23 And besought him greatly, saying, My little daughter lieth at the point of death: I pray thee, come and lay thy hands on her, that she may be healed; and she shall live. 24 And Jesus went with him; and much people followed him, and thronged him. 25 And a certain woman, which had an issue of blood twelve years, 26 And had suffered many things of many physicians, and had spent all that she had, and was nothing bettered, but rather grew worse, 27 When she had heard of Jesus, came in the press behind, and touched his garment. 28 For she said, If I may touch but his clothes, I shall be whole. 29 And straightway the fountain of her blood was dried up; and she felt in her body that she was healed of that plague. 30 And Jesus, immediately knowing in himself that virtue had gone out of him, turned him about in the press, and said, Who touched my clothes? 31 And his disciples said unto him, Thou seest the multitude thronging thee, and sayest thou, Who touched me? 32 And he looked round about to see her that had done this thing. 33 But the woman fearing and trembling, knowing what was done in her, came and fell down before him, and told him all the truth. 34 And he said unto her, Daughter, thy faith hath made thee whole; go in peace, and be whole of thy plague. 35 While he yet spake, there came from the ruler of the synagogue’s house certain which said, Thy daughter is dead: why troublest thou the Master any further? 36 As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, he saith unto the ruler of the synagogue, Be not afraid, only believe. 37 And he suffered no man to follow him, save Peter, and James, and John the brother of James. 38 And he cometh to the house of the ruler of the synagogue, and seeth the tumult, and them that wept and wailed greatly. 39 And when he was come in, he saith unto them, Why make ye this ado, and weep? the damsel is not dead, but sleepeth. 40 And they laughed him to scorn. But when he had put them all out, he taketh the father and the mother of the damsel, and them that were with him, and entereth in where the damsel was lying. 41 And he took the damsel by the hand, and said unto her, Talitha cumi; which is, being interpreted, Damsel, I say unto thee, arise. 42 And straightway the damsel arose, and walked; for she was of the age of twelve years. And they were astonished with a great astonishment. 43 And he charged them straitly that no man should know it; and commanded that something should be given her to eat.” (Mark 5:21-43 KJV)

Comments then:

  1. Holy Communion
  2. sang completely off-beat [regarding Hymn 383: My Faith Looks Up at Thee]
  3. sang by choir of children [regarding Anthem: It’s about the Cross]
    • with interpretative dance by 5 little girls
  4. Sermon on atheists [Sermon: Who Touched Me?]
    • argument that Christians are hypocrites, flawed
    • faith being messy
  5. the woman who touched Jesus’ cloak & became well
  6. the leader’s child who died and was “woken up” by Jesus
  7. people reaching out for God,
  8. God reaching out to people continuously
  9. Outreach — to propagate faith outside church (congregation & building)
  10. “found at your feast” (bread & wine)
    • “gather us in” [regarding the response to the invitation to Communion]

Comments now:

  1. It’s said that faith can move mountains, but my faith (little or total lack of) can’t even help my sick little boy. It’s depressive and absurd.

    Si algo no comprendes, déjalo pasar, no te preocupes, con el tiempo, lo entenderás, dice Sai Baba.
