Hope and healing at street level

From the July 28, 2003 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel

How do you define healing? Is it all about relief from physical trouble and suffering, or does it have to do with more than just the human body? Is healing something that's too much to hope for on a consistent basis in your life, or do you feel you have the means confidently to expect it, without the fear of being let down by false hope? Ask many people what healing means, and you're likely to get an answer that covers the whole ground of human affairs. Yes, they might say, it's definitely about curing sickness and also preventing it before it begins.
