Bethesda: Come to the Water arose from a deep, shared need. Invisible wounds, though hidden and buried deep, still cause harm to us and to our relationships. Jesus longs to heal us in these hidden places. He asks us the same question that he asked the paralyzed man at the pool of Bethesda: "Do you want to get well?"

Designed for small groups, but also valuable for personal use, this 10-session guide uses Bible study, reflection, writing, prayer, and art to engage people in active participation with God on a journey of restoration and healing.
