God did not give us a spirit of cowardice, but rather a spirit of power
and of love and of self-discipline.

2 Timothy 1: 7

We must proclaim the truth that all life is one and that we are all of
us tied together. Therefore it is mandatory that we work for a society
in which the least person can find refuge and refreshment. . . . You
must lay your lives on the altar of social change so that wherever
you are, there the Kingdom of God is at hand!

Gracious is God, and righteous;

Our God is merciful.

God protects the simple;

When I was brought low, God saved me.

Return, O my soul, to your rest,

For God has dealt bountifully with you.

                 Psalm 116: 5-7

For the love of Christ urges us on, because we are convinced that one has died for all; therefore, all have died. And he died for all, so that those who live might no longer live for themselves, but for him who died and was raised for them.

From now on, therefore, we regard no one from a human point of view; even though we once knew Christ from a human point of view, we know him no longer in that way. So if anyone is in Christ there is a new creation: everything old has passed away; see, everything has become new!

 2 Corinthians 5: 14-17

Now there was a woman who had been suffering from hemorrhages for twelve years. She had endured much under many physicians and had spent all that she had; and she was no better, but rather grew worse. She had heard about Jesus, and came up behind him in the crowd and touched his cloak, for she said, “If I but touch his clothes, I will be made well.” Immediately her hemorrhage stopped; and she felt in her body that she was healed of her disease. Immediately aware that power had gone forth from him, Jesus turned about in the crowd and said, “Who touched my clothes?” And his disciples said to him, “You see the crowd pressing in on you; how can you say, ‘Who touched me?’ ” He looked all around to see who had done it. But the woman, knowing what had happened to her, came in fear and trembling, fell down before him, and told him the whole truth. He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well; go in peace, and be healed of your disease.”

Mark 5: 25-34
