Fires out west, and all who are impacted
Thornton Wilder’s short play “The Angel that Troubled the Waters”, based on the pool of Bethesda in John chapter 5. 
A doctor is at the pool, waiting to be healed of his depression. When the water is stirred, the doctor runs toward the pool…but the angel stops him. The doctor insists that he should be healed, so that he can heal others. The angel responds: Without your wound where would your power be? It is your very remorse that makes your low voice tremble into the hearts of men. The very angels themselves cannot persuade the wretched and blundering children on earth as can one human being broken on the wheels of living. In love’s service only the wounded soldiers can serve. Draw back.
The message this morning was simple. We are all broken, but loved. Accepting and working through our brokenness is what gives us the power to impact the lives of others!
