Hands On

 

Suppose you are a person that has no knowledge of Christian
faith or what people in churches do. Chances are though, you have some cultural
clues from movies and shows. There are some common tropes of the priest
performing a funeral, the obese southern preacher waving a Bible in the air,
gospel choirs bringing the house down with their songs or the televangelist
putting his hands on peoples’ foreheads and their fainting to the ground.

 

All of these stereotypes can be found in real life, but they
do not capture the purpose and intentionality of Christian leaders as they
teach and direct a local church. At times I’ve had people say to me, “You do
not look like a pastor
.” They have a picture in their mind that they got
from somewhere else.

 

Likewise, if you meet someone that you had only seen on a
screen or a distant stage, you might be surprised at how human they appear up
close. What is it that changes when we experience someone up close?

 

Even the conception of God as a Spirit can seem abstract.
This is one of the prime reasons for God to become human in Jesus. We sometimes
need a face-to-face encounter. We can comprehend the human part of God’s touch.

 

The ‘laying on of hands’ is a common Christian and
Jewish practice as old as the Scriptures themselves. Commonly that involves the
one who is praying or blessing putting a hand or hands on top of the other
person’s head, forehead or upon their shoulders.

 

While human touch can be unwelcomed or abusive, a welcomed
touch can be encouraging and affirming. Nothing is comparable to a pure touch
from someone that matters to you. Let’s look at some of the ways that the
laying on of hands is part of the Christian experience.
