Story: Luke 18:31-19:10 (p. 958-9, Pew Bible)
Sermon: “Incorporated Into Community”
Reflection: Physical blindness and spiritual blindness lie within our gospel reading this week; Jesus once more predicting his death, which remains hidden from their understanding; the healing of a blind man, and the renewing of Zacchaeus – all point to new starts, new vision, new revelations. Sometimes we in the church are so entrenched in the way we do things we forget that not everyone knows or sees things the way we do. As you reflect this week, ask yourself what others see when they come to church; what others may feel when they come through the door? What can you do to help others see Jesus?
