Lenten Series 2015 Fourth Sunday

Light and Eye
The theme for the readings this Sunday is light.  John often speaks of light in his gospel.  Jesus says, "While I am in the world, I am the light of the world."  The story gets more complex because the healing story comes into play.  Jesus heals a blind man and gets in trouble for it.  So, the dialogue goes on about whether the man who Jesus healed was actually born blind.  Then the analogy to spiritual blindness comes in.  So, light, seeing, and self-delusion get discussed.  It's quite complex.

I purposely chose dense applications of dark and light.  Then, the eye is a portion of a flower collaged to the surface.  Not beautiful but it makes the point!

I really like this one, Marilyn. It's the starkness against the eye.
