Reflection Questions

1 SAMUEL 16:1-13

  1. Share a time in your life when God surprised you.
  2. What might God be inviting us to leave behind/let go of and into what might God be inviting us into during this pandemic?

JOHN 9:1-41

  1. What acts of God might be revealed in us during these next few weeks?
  2. The man’s parents disown him out of fear. What harm do we cause our neighbors when we act out of fear?
  3. How can we be the light of the world like Jesus in practical ways in response to Covid-19?


Merciful God, constant source of all healing, we give you thanks for all your gifts of strength and life, and above all we thank you for the gift of your Son, through whom we have health and salvation. As we wait for that day when there will be no more pain, help us by your Holy Spirit to be assured of your power in our lives and to trust in your eternal love; through Jesus Christ, our Savior and Lord. Amen.
