It looks like we have one of the Palm Gospels. Not quite! It includes a few extra verses omitted on Palm Sunday. Reflect on the very last verse of today’s Gospel that the blind and the lame came to Jesus in the Temple and he cured them. Who are the ‘blind’ and the ‘lame’ in your community? Are they coming to your ‘temple’? Are they invited?
- Pray for self-awareness as an individual and as a congregation; Surely, we are not blind, are we? (John 9.40)
- Give thanks for the work and witness of the Anglican Church of Korea, the Daehan Seong Gong Hoe.
