On the 4th Sunday of Lent, Andre Pekovich read a sermon by Rev. Dr. Carl Gregg (Seeing for the First Time) based on the story in John 9 of the man born blind. The metaphorical blindness of the religious leaders was revealed in their presumption of sin as the cause of physical disability. But Jesus refuted that prejudiced view and healed the man to reveal God’s mighty works. People like the R&B singer Ray Charles and the physicist Stephen Hawking show us how much the differently-abled can accomplish. May we recognize the variety in God’s blessings, like that of the English poet John Newton, who wrote in the hymn Amazing Grace, “I once was blind, but now I see.” [KH]
