A short story

December 3, 2007

Using their own words, the class was performing a parable from the New Testament  — the story of the blind man receiving back his sight from Jesus.   Bobby was the ragged blind man, and Mark played the part of Jesus. The story progresses… “Master, master, have  pity on me.”    “What is it you want?”    “Master, I want my sight back.”  Mark looked at his teacher with a very worried expression on his young face.  “I haven’t got it!”  A good commentary on the Church? With all the concern over traditions, establishment, creeds, sexuality etc. etc. how will anyone ‘see’ the reality of Christian truth that God is LOVE and the healer of man’s soul?
