Thinking about healing

Sometimes I feel as if the local church needs a healthy theology of healing. I’m not speaking of my local church or any church in particular. I just wonder….

What is the responsibility of the local church toward suffering, sickness?

What role/function does the Bible demand of the local church?

Often the individual enduring the crisis is expected to muster the faith or bare the burden.

Does the local church need a more faithful theology of healing? A deeper exploration of Scripture and a pastoral paradigm of healing within the local church?

I’m close to really researching and writing about this..your thoughts
