Opening borders

I have a friend who grew up in an area near the border of a neighboring country. Interchange and free movement went on between the countries. As a result, my friend spoke two languages and through study he learned a third.

I have another friend who is brilliant but who believes that learning another language is impossible. Never having had much contact with people who don't speak his own language, he believes that the possibility of his learning another language is as remote as his flying to the moon!

There's a certain relevance about these two friends' very different attitudes that relates to the experience of spiritual, or Christian, healing. If such healing has not been a part of one's life, or if one has, for example, experienced such healing as a youngster but hasn't pursued as an adult an understanding of how the healing came about, it may seem as remote and out of reach as mastering another language. And yet we normally expect children to master the fundamentals of their own language well before they even begin school.
