Sunday's worship was led by Mr Rob Manley with Mrs Pamela Williams the organist. Rob read from Mark ch.10 v 46-52 the story of blind Bartimaeus.  He then talked to us about what it would be like to be blind then about Bartimaeus and the time he spent begging. When he heard Jesus was coming along he called and called to him.  Jesus did not call out to him but involved His disciples and asked them to bring Bartimaeus to Him.  In the same way today He asks us to bring people to Him, our friends’ families and neighbours, we may not be physically blind but there are many people who are spiritually blind.
