Divine Healing (aka Healing Secrets) by Andrew Murray, led by Cyndie Degnan

Our prayer lists seem longer than ever due to illness or death. Where is God in all of this? What does He promise us regarding spiritual and physical healing? Pastor Andrew Murray  answered these questions scripturally some one hundred years ago, showing how to walk victoriously in divine health. We may not all agree, but this class begins a broad and ongoing discussion of these issues. Contact Cyndie at to reserve a book. 10/26/14-Spring 2015
