’Surely We Are Not Blind, Are We?’ is sermon Sunday at Trinity Lutheran


BRATTLEBORO -- The Rev. Peggy Yingst will reflect on the day’s Scripture readings for the fourth Sunday in Lent on March 30 at Trinity Lutheran Church. Her sermon title, "Surely We Are Not Blind, Are We?," examines the story in the ninth chapter of John’s gospel that recounts Jesus’ healing of the blind man.

This theme of sight runs throughout Sunday’s texts, both in terms of how God does not see as we see and also in Jesus’ healing of a man born blind. Lent is a time to reevaluate. Let it also be a time to examine the ways in which we do not see what God is doing around us because we too think we know better. Bottom line: God often uses the unexpected to accomplish redemption.

Come to worship, to hear words of hope, to pray for strength to live God’s ways, and to share in Holy Communion, the meal of grace and forgiveness.

Sunday School for all ages and the Adult Forum gather at 9 a.m.

Trinity meets for worship at 10:30 a.m. The church is located at 161 Western Ave., Brattleboro, across from Holton Home. Trinity has been an Open and Affirming Congregation since 2004.
