EXPERIENCING HEALING POSTLUDE


EXPERIENCING HEALING POSTLUDE

I have not seen many miracles

Since the night of that Catskill meet…

I wonder if doubting like Pharisees

Could be my own unbelief.

Not many have seen life back from the dead,

If we did we’d probably doubt…

How many have seen no miracle work

Because of unbelief not cast out?

How well did our Lord by parables show

Where the “rich” were likely to be…

Cynical, scientific, deluded and more,

Immature but growing was me.

Since then I’ve laid my hands on a few

During church to alleviate pain,

With elders and deacons according to plan…

But I’ve not seen a raising again.

I wonder if I ever will experience again

The raising of one from “the dead”…

Next time I hope the Spirit takes hold

And I won’t be led astray by my head.

—Jonathan Caswell
