Healing the Blind

Healing the Blind 
Mark 10:46-52, Pentecost 22
Look round and in for signs of loss of sight
unrecognized by those left in the dark,
maybe because they think they’re always right.
Their inner blindness leaves no outer mark.
They cannot see how racial hatred harms,
or what life might be like for refugees.
Their minds are blank to climate change alarms,
or to the news that homeless sleepers freeze.
Blind beggar by the road had inner sight,
and cried for mercy to the one who hears.
Some told him to be silent in his plight,
but he yelled loudly at their deafened ears.
“My teacher, let me see again,” he cried,
and, sight restored, walked on at Jesus’ side.
