Healing Touch Quotes by Presbyterian Minister, Reverend Zach Thomas
Touch , like food, is life-giving.
Healing touch is understood as an expression of a potential built into every one of us. I call this God-given capacity "heart/hand coordination". It develops naturally. We exercise heart/hand coordination whenever we communicate through touch the compassion we feel toward those receiving our care. In other words, a healing touch is basically part of our love and compassion for one another, and as such, it facilitates healing ministry in many ways.
In healing touch we listen accurately to share the traveler's pain. In response, we coordinate our hearts with our hands to share compassion through touch. Since Jesus modeled this way for us, we trust that what we do is part of a larger healing process guided by God.
