Connecting Caring Learning Serving

Weekly E-pistle

Seeing is believing.  It can also be said that believing is seeing.  What we believe often determines what we see and how we interpret it. Bartimaeus was a blind beggar who because he believed in the possibility that Jesus could heal him, asserted himself in a crowd and won the attention of Jesus.  Because he believed enough to act, he regained his sight.  If we believe in Jesus and act, what might we see that helps us regain  our spiritual sight?  If we regain our spiritual sight, who knows what we might see that will transform our lives, the lives of our neighbors, and maybe even the world.
