Touching Jesus – Without Shame

This station follows the talk “Touching Jesus


If you are not using that passage in your service (or even if you are) it might be worth printing out the story in a translation that people will find easy to understand (The Message, New Living Translation or the Contemporary English Version for example). The whole passage can be found in Mark 5:24-33

Instructions to print:

The woman was “unclean”, left out and ashamed.
She thought to herself, “If I can just touch his robe, I will be healed.”

We can feel unclean and ashamed. Jesus invites us to come to him and be made new. The bible calls it being “born again”, given a new start, made as innocent as a newborn baby.

Offer to Jesus anything you feel ashamed of.

As a symbol of his gift of new life you could rub a little baby lotion into your hands.

Resources needed:

  • Baby Lotion
  • Paper towels (just in case people apply a little too much!)
