Dorena Williamson: Mark 5:24-34
Play • 9 min

It’s not too early to mark your calendars: we’ll be back with another Advent season, beginning on November 29. I hope you’ll join me, as we wait together for God.

In the meantime, everyone needs some rest from time to time, and so I’m going to be taking a little break. But I would love for you to hear from some of my friends while I’m resting! Starting this week, we’ll have special guest-hosted episodes of We Wonder every week, where you can still listen to God’s good words with some lovely and different voices. And I’ll be listening along with you!

This week's episode features our friend, Dorena Williamson. Dorena is a bridge-builder, speaker, writer, and church-planter. Her books gently invite children and grownups alike to explore truths that are near and dear to my heart: that God has created all of us beautiful, across the range of human colors and cultures, as well as in all of our different abilities. I’m so grateful she is joining us today!

Dorena’s books (linked to Amazon, but I encourage you to buy them from your local bookstore or place an order with Hearts and Minds Books!): 

Colorfull: Celebrating the Colors God Gave us

Thoughtfull: Discovering the Unique Gifts in Each of Us

Gracefull: Growing a Heart That Cares For Our Neighbors

Today's Scripture is from Mark's gospel, chapter 5 verses 24 - 34.

24 So he went with him. And a large crowd followed him and pressed in on him. 25 Now there was a woman who had been suffering from hemorrhages for twelve years. 26 She had endured much under many physicians, and had spent all that she had; and she was no better, but rather grew worse. 27 She had heard about Jesus, and came up behind him in the crowd and touched his cloak, 28 for she said, “If I but touch his clothes, I will be made well.” 29 Immediately her hemorrhage stopped; and she felt in her body that she was healed of her disease. 30 Immediately aware that power had gone forth from him, Jesus turned about in the crowd and said, “Who touched my clothes?” 31 And his disciples said to him, “You see the crowd pressing in on you; how can you say, ‘Who touched me?’” 32 He looked all around to see who had done it. 33 But the woman, knowing what had happened to her, came in fear and trembling, fell down before him, and told him the whole truth. 34 He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has made you well; go in peace, and be healed of your disease.”
