Luke 8:26-39 Jesus heals a naked and possessed man
Jesus' power to heal

We are all in danger of being possessed by negative self-talk. The things we entertain in our minds about ourselves and others have the potential to drive us away from community and sanity and into despair and isolation. 

When Jesus meets the Garasene man possessed by a demon with the name "Legion" ("Legion" was the name of a regiment of Roman soldiers 1500-2000 strong), he restores him to sanity, community, and right relations with God.

This healing is available for every human being willing to confront the darkness, judgments, and the stronghold of "being right" that threaten both our lives and our unity.
