Weekly resources to enrich worship and learning – wherever you are

Preparing for 24 - 30 October 2021

Jeremiah 31.7-9; Psalm 126; Hebrews 7.23-28; Mark 10.46-52RCL Proper 25 Year B

Blind faith

The crowd following Jesus are stopped by a cry from the roadside. Bartimaeus – a man seen as an outsider, deemed not valuable enough for Jesus’ attention – sees what others didn’t or couldn’t. He recognised who Jesus was and the hope that could be found in him. Bartimaeus had heard about Jesus, and now he called out to him with complete faith that the teacher could and would heal him. Jesus told Bartimaeus that his faith had cured him.

In hearing the cry and responding, Jesus teaches everyone to see life in a different way, from a new perspective.

This week we explore seeing and being seen.
