Seeing and seen

“There’s something holy and important about paying attention to our surroundings and to the people near us,” says Rev. Dr. Kristin Adkins Whitesides, Senior Pastor of First Baptist Church, Winchester, Virginia. She invites us to journey with the blind man who is healed by Jesus in John 9:1-41. He must figure out what his life will mean now that he is no longer blind. Those around him must also figure out what their lives will mean in response to his healing. Who is truly blind?
