Spiritual Blindness (1 Samuel 16:1-13, John 9:1-41)

Phillip HopwoodPhillip Hopwood, May 4, 2014
Part of the Lent series, preached at a Sunday Morning service

It is easy to assume that bad things happen because we have done wrong? But life is more messy and complicated that we often presume. Today we seek to learn from the story of selection of David as King of Israel, and the story of Jesus and the man born blind. We discover that often those who think they are the only ones who truly see are really the blind ones.
