Bekah led us this week in a reflection on Mark 10:46-51, the story of Bartimaeus. Delving deeply into her own story of hurt and healing, Bekah speaks of Jesus’s healing and the road that we walk that is a journey through the cross to resurrection. Along the way, Bartimaeus takes his own voice, is named, has agency, and is involved deeply in his own healing, engaging with Jesus as he is coming through Jericho, and choosing to follow Jesus on the journey.
Bekah left us these questions to reflect on.
- What stories from your own journey arise as you hear the testimony of Bartimaeus? Which character do you resonate with the most? (Bartimaeus, the nameless blind man, the crowds, etc.)
- How is God calling you to be an agent of change for your own healing and/or the healing of others?
