Present-day resurrection—the powerful connection between Church and healing
What would you do if you had been troubled by something for quite a while, and the calm, gentle thought came to you: Go to church tomorrow and be healed.

God’s love often speaks to us in these quiet, reassuring ways, and the opportunity to attend the next church service would be filled with great anticipation.
