In the Letter of James, we read his advice to the church about healing the sick. He talks about healing people with prayer and anointing them with oil. In the Gospel of Mark, we find the story of Jesus healing blind Bartimaeus. Does this advice on healing people and this story of Jesus giving sight to the blind have any relevance for us today. Could it be a part of the life of the church in 2015, or is it best left as antiquated tales of the ancient past?
