There is a Balm in Gilead
Rev. Chandler Stokes
After an injury, an illness, or a loss, we move, by grace, to a new normal--that's the word these days. And that new normal sounds a lot less full of grief and loss and sorrow than it truly is. When we affirm that there is a balm in Gilead, we remember that in the wake of healing are often scars. It is good news, and yet it is not cheap or glib.
