Author Liuan Huska joins us today to talk about her new book, Hurting Yet Whole: Reconciling Body and Spirit in Chronic Pain and Illness. We talk about some theology with healing that can hopefully bring healing to you. We also talk about ways we can help members of the body of Christ who live in chronic pain or illness.

-Scriptures about Adam are from Romans 5:12-21
-1 Corinthians 12:21-26 “The eye cannot say to the hand, “I don’t need you!” And the head cannot say to the feet, “I don’t need you!” On the contrary, those parts of the body that seem to be weaker are indispensable, and the parts that we think are less honorable we treat with special honor. And the parts that are unpresentable are treated with special modesty, while our presentable parts need no special treatment. But God has put the body together, giving greater honor to the parts that lacked it, so that there should be no division in the body, but that its parts should have equal concern for each other. If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honored, every part rejoices with it.

-Hands and feet of Christ analogy: from a poem by St. Teresa of Ávila
