The Gerasene Demoniac
Today's Gospel is a great one for those who identify with "before and after" pictures:
- Weight-loss programmes (note the proper spelling!) a la Jenny Craig or Weight Watchers
- Home / garden transformations a la Changing Rooms, Backyard Blitz
- Political advertising (Hey, this is an election year!)
- Naked, Demon-possessed, tomb-living man becomes clothed, sane, man at Jesus' feet.
If we are not daily, even continuously, singing Psalms of praise and thanksgiving to declare how much God has done for us, can we really claim to be cleaned and saved?
