'Heal' is the Advent Word for today.

To heal is one of the things God does, through natural processes, through medicines and physicians, through people and communities and through miracles.

Healing in the Bible is about much more than curing an illness. It is about wholeness, well-being, restoration, being at peace and in harmony, not only within oneself but with others and with God.

The Psalmist says this of God:
He heals the brokenhearted, 
and binds up their wounds.
Psalm 147: 3

Jeremiah prays:
Heal me, O Lord, and I shall be healed; 
save me, and I shall be saved; 
for you are my praise.
Jeremiah 17: 14
