The compassion that heals

From the December 14, 2015 issue of the Christian Science Sentinel


In the Gospel of John, it’s related that while passing by a pool called Bethesda, Jesus meets a man lying there who has had an infirmity for 38 years (see 5:2–9 ). He tells Jesus that whenever the waters are agitated, whoever steps into the pool first is healed of his troubles.
