S 51 Power and Vulnerability: Reflections on Mark 9£2.77
The first sets out to discover where power can be found in situations in which we seem powerless and vulnerable. We find it in the power to offer ourselves in all our vulnerability to God. This is true prayer, which we hear expressed in the cry, 'I believe; help my unbelief!'
The second chapter wonders how the power we do have can serve those we meet who are oppressed and who suffer. We find that if power is used with vulnerability, to enter into the suffering of another, then we can be agents of God‚Äôs deliverance from evil. This is true authority, which we see exercised in the healing ministry of Jesus.
