I use it for 'heal hurt' or to heal any trivial boo-boos that people get -- you know, whacking your thumb with a hammer. Stuff like that. Minor healing can be improvised if you've got an appropriate affinity (narrator's call on that!) at something like a -5 to -10, depending on what it is. A devotee could then learn the Feat he improvised...

There's a section in the Advanced rules and the Thesist rules talking about communal magic. Its your ability to participate in big rituals as a 'faceless clansmen' but its alwso you ability to get divine intervention (or at least a feat) from a god in your pantheon you do not have a formal relationship with.
