Monthly healing service set
The next local healing service will be at the Church of St. Sacrement on Monday, Feb. 2 at 7 p.m. The church welcomes persons of all faiths, seeking to be a lighthouse of hope, compassion and love. This healing ministry is employed in conjunction with the medical profession. Note that healing ministry officials never suggest that anyone cease taking their medication or act contrary to the advice of their physician. Healing may be sought for disease and injury, physical or emotional pain, memories or loss, generational concerns, depression, anger and despair, ministry representatives said.
When a healing does occur it may or may not include a cure. The atmosphere is relaxed and casual. As the ministry's guest, participants will enjoy a quiet, gentle, caring environment where it is safe to receive God's healing love, a Ministry representative said.
