Weekly Update - 1/19

Patrick's lesson Sunday morning was "Do You Believe?", with the text taken from John 9.  It was using the illustration of the blind man being healed and his sight restored!
They get so caught up in the little things that when amazing things happen, like the man's sight being restored, they completely miss it.
The story of John 9 confronts readers throughout the generations:
~~We find ourselves joined with the disciples.
~~We join with the neighbors and friends in utter disbelief that this man was healed.
~~We join with the Pharisees in questioning him, and his parents.
We also join with the healed man and we are confronted by the question of Jesus..."Do you believe in the Son of Man?"..."Do you believe in me?"..."Are your eyes open to see the light?"
