27 June 21 – Sunday 13B (COCU 45B)

(Mark 5:21-43)
Coming openly,
or silent, through their neighbours
they sought Jesus’ aid.

Synagogue leader,
pleaded help for his daughter
that she might yet live.

Woman in the crowd,
reached out, touched Jesus’ clothes –
and she was made well.

The child lay ‘asleep’
Jesus took her by the hand
raised her to new life.

Following Jesus
it may be we are not healed
but, rather, made whole.
