12. Other Recommendations

(a) Images that indicate healing should be used on the morning bulletin/order of worship and on church screens.

(b) Persons and groups in the congregation who provide healing ministries should have lead roles in the morning, evening, or afternoon worship. If your church does not have ministries specifically devoted to healing, it would be good to inaugurate such ministries during a service of this type.

(c) A period should be provided during the service for a testimony from a person in the congregation who has been healed.

(d) Yellow ribbons can be placed in prominent places in the sanctuary to represent missing children.
