Spit

This week I am working on a sermon entitled “SPIT.”

In John, Chapter 9, Christ spits on the ground and uses the resulting mud to spackle the eyes of a man who has been blind from birth.

That seems pretty intimidating…

So, I need your help.

Tell me stories…

Have you ever witnessed, or been a part of, healing the sick?

Please share.  You need not have used mud.  But if you did…
