That’s because Jesus welcomes all kinds of people.
Some people suppose Christians consider themselves high and mighty. But during his life on Earth, Jesus welcomed all sorts, including – especially – the riff-raff of his time who were rejected by the religious leaders or who lived on the margins of society.
Such people still come to Jesus “at his feet, weeping,” like the unnamed woman in today’s story. They have the humility to know they need God – need his healing love, need his compassionate help, need his mending forgiveness. People who have “made it” think they can do all that on their own. (Hear God lol.)
Real Christians know they are broken and in deep need of fixing. As followers of Jesus, we at PEACE Lutheran Church welcome all those who yearn to be healed by God’s mighty Spirit!

YOUTH @ PEACE SUNDAY SCHOOL
It’s our last Sunday of the term! We’ll review the role of the 10 Commandments in our lives, then celebrate the sweetness of God’s love with ICE CREAM! Meet @ 9:45 a.m. in the Youth Room downstairs.
Youth @ Peace is our all-ages Bible study, teaching key Bible stories – the cornerstone for a lifetime of faith. Younger readers, tweens and teens open each session together, have break-out groups for age-appropriate reading and discussion, then regroup for a joint closing. We also have large-group activities.
