BISHOP DANIEL MUEGGENBORG'S REFLECTION
FOURTH SUNDAY OF LENT

Our Scripture passage for this Sunday comes from the Gospel of John 9:1–41. It is a rich scene in which Jesus gives both sight and insight to the man born blind. This reading tells us who Jesus is and what He means for our lives. At the same time, this particular reading is a teaching on the nature of sin and the challenge of discipleship. Here are several points for our reflection and prayer......... 
How does this passage change the way you understand baptism?
How can a faith community help people to better appreciate the significance of their baptism, especially if they were baptized as children? When a person is baptized, they are given a lit candle with the words, “Receive the Light of Christ.” When have you experienced Jesus opening your eyes in a moment of faith?
To be immersed in the “Sent One” means that we share in the life of God and that the life of God permeates and defines us in every way. When are you most aware of the life of God in you?
How can you foster greater awareness of, and responsiveness to, the life of God in you? How is it possible for us to allow the life of God to become diminished within us?
