Bulletin Shorts for the Fourth Sunday of Lent

Fourth Sunday of Lent – 22 March 2020 

1 Samuel 16:1b, 6-7, 10-13a.  Psalm 23:1-3a, 3b-4, 5, 6.  Ephesians 5:8-14.  John 9:1-41.

Seeing Christ.  Even the blind man in today’s gospel sees Christ – and does what he is told by him.  Listening and then doing – even in the face of opposition – brings sight and insight.

  • How will I look for Christ in every person and in every action this lenten week?
  • What is God asking me to do? How will I do it?
  • How will I be a sign of Christ’s light and life for the elect preparing for Easter Baptism?

* Fill in names of the elect *
