Introduction to the Readings - Lent 4 - 20110403

1 Sam 16:1-13 –  PS 23 –  Eph 5:8-14 –  John 9:1-41
Intro to the Readings
In the reading from First Samuel we hear the story of David being anointed by the prophet.
Psalm 23 is a very pastoral Psalm – a Psalm you probably know to well – but listen afresh to the words of a shepherd.
The Apostle Paul writes to the Ephesians, or does he write to the Laodiceans?* He speaks to us today that we may live as “children of the light.”
In the Gospel we listen to a man who was born blind, but now he can see the light.

Let us listen and receive the light.

* They are missing a letter!
