This Week's Promise to Share

When she heard about Jesus, she came up behind him in the crowd and touched his cloak, because she thought, “If I just touch his clothes, I will be healed.” Immediately her bleeding stopped and she felt in her body that she was freed from her suffering.

At once Jesus realized that power had gone out from him. He turned around in the crowd and asked, “Who touched my clothes?”

“You see the people crowding against you,” his disciples answered, “and yet you can ask, ‘Who touched me?’

But Jesus kept looking around to see who had done it. Then the woman, knowing what had happened to her, came and fell at his feet and, trembling with fear, told him the whole truth. He said to her, “Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be freed from your suffering.”

While Jesus was still speaking, some people came from the house of Jairus, the synagogue leader. “Your daughter is dead,” they said. “Why bother the teacher anymore?”

Overhearing what they said, Jesus told him, “Don’t be afraid; just believe.”

Mark 5:27-36, NIV

It's All About the Destination
So many people have shared with me the phrase, “It’s not about the destination, it’s about the journey.” My guess is those people have not moved halfway across the country with three kids and three pets in one minivan in two days. Read more from Seth Pierce!

Aug. 3 :: Reverse It! Health Seminar

Join Mt. Tahoma Church on August 3 for Reverse It!, a health seminar with Dr. Helen!

Dr. Helen lost her parents to diet exacerbated illness. Her mother was only 59 when she said her last good bye suffering from the complications of type 2 diabetes. Her dad was lost to metastatic prostate cancer, but lived 11 years after his prognosis of having only six months to live.

Can this happen for you? Good news! Type 2 diabetes is reversible—so is heart disease, hypertension, high cholesterol, obesity and even some forms of cancer and many other inflammatory diseases. If you or someone you love is suffering with any of these conditions, invite them out. Let’s have a conversation.
