Old and New Stories of Sight
Sermon Series Summer 2020

“I once was blind but now I see.” Throughout the grand narrative of scripture you find stories of sight, those whose eyes were opened to what they had not been able to see before. These stories resonate in our day, mostly because experiences like that are very obviously still happening…to us. These are awakening moments that shape us to the core. Once you see something you cannot unsee it. You can’t go back. Clarity changes you.
