The ideas expressed here may be controversial for some - they're intended to be.
The idea is to get you thinking about why you believe what you believe, and generate a bit of discussion.
Many blogs offer devotional inspiration, I want to offer theological inspiration.

Jesus Touches Wounded People


Jesus touches wounded people:
He touches wounds where neither blade nor arrow reach.
Jesus touches wounded people:
He touches scars, thick and hard through years of careful nursing.
Jesus touches wounded people:
He touches broken things, our limbs and smiles and minds and hearts.
Jesus touches wounded people:
Touches tender hurts, too raw, too vulnerable for any other touch.
Jesus touches wounded people:
Touches the loneliness of invisible, isolating hurt.
Jesus touches wounded people:
His touch the gentlest touch, a knowing touch, an understanding touch.
Jesus touches wounded people:
His touch an affirming touch, an urging touch, an encouraging touch.
Jesus touches wounded people:
And touched, their wounds may sting, or ache,
or even shrink away from being touched.
Jesus touches wounded people,
But touched, their wounds begin to heal.
