MOVEMENTS OF HEALING
Honesty. Humility. Hope.
Honesty, humility, and hope. These are the three movements of healing we see again and again in the gospel stories of healing. These are the movements we see in our own lives and in our communities.
These all emerge from and lead back to the love that holds us all together. As we heal, we learn to receive our belovedness even as that love heals us. And as we receive our belovedness and live in love, we are also prompted to create spaces of belonging where others can also know the healing love of God.
Honesty, humility, and hope—movements that lead you ever more towards the healing love of God.
To Be Made Well
AN INVITATION TO WHOLENESS, HEALING, AND HOPE
To Be Made Well—which may be my favorite book yet by Amy Julia—is as personal as it is universal. This is a guidebook full of hard-earned insight. This is a trail blazed through the wilderness.
We live in a fractured world with bodies that bear on and in them the brokenness of living. This is a book about how we see Jesus, how he sees us, and how his love heals us just a little bit more each day.
Amy Julia masterfully explores the complex and sensitive topic of healing in a vulnerable, sobering, and comprehensive way. This book will better equip you both for your journey in the healing process and to be an agent of healing.
With vulnerability, wisdom, and grace, Amy Julia guides us towards seeking and understanding what it really means to be made well. I hope everyone reads this book.”
In an age marked by division, Amy Julia has a word of hope: Jesus can make us whole and well. What that holistic healing looks like and how we can participate in it is the creative gift offered in these pages.
Amy Julia Becker turns the stories of the bleeding woman and Jairus’s daughter over like a prism and sheds light on our personal, spiritual, and communal longings to be whole. [It is an] invitation to participate in God’s...work of healing.
Amy Julia Becker is one of the best practical theologians writing today. Her books are poignant, personal, and deeply profound, and To Be Made Well is no exception.
Timely, practical, and full of hope, To Be Made Well is a beautiful offering for our current weary, splintered, and hurting world. These pages hold timeless lessons and helpful application. Highly recommend!
