I liked how you brought this man to life. I felt his pain and his anguish. Well-known story but this was a fresh way of telling it. You are an excellent story-teller.
Great story. Brings to life one story of many of Jesus healing the helpless. Well done!

I LOVE your take on this topic and your story's POV. You've effectively revealed the MC's emotions to the reader. Very nice!
Great job getting into your MC mind and thoughts making their reaction to God's grace even that more real. Loved your ending and the title could not be more perfect.
Excellent character development bringing this Bible story to life. Wonderful entry!

This is a beautiful story. That touch must have meant so much to one who had to cry "Unclean!" everywhere he went. Good job!

Beautifully written!

I couldn't help but compare this to how all of us as sinners felt when we were touched by God:

"Look at me! I'm clean! Jesus touched me and I'm clean!"

Well deserving of your placement!
Pam, congratulations on your placement. It is truly a wonderful entry!
