    Healing is a subject that you don’t hear much about. Oh, you hear it on television but usually not from the pulpit at your local church. I attended church from the time when I was, oh, let’s say 8 years old, and I don’t ever remember the preacher talking about healing.

    Why is that? Is it that we don’t believe in it?
