This is the season of the Lent.

Due to the State of New Jersey and the city of Bayonne declaring a state of emergency, Grace Lutheran Church is cancelling worship service and all other activities until further notice. Please monitor this website and Facebook for further information and a video of a Brief Order of Service that will be posted sometime tomorrow.

From the Pastor

March 22

Remember having to read that book that had too many pages for you to get through? Thank God for Cliff Notes! The story of the man born blind in John 9 is a short read but long for Bible standards and often requires the congregation to be seated for the story. Ironically, during these days we will stand in grocery lines considerably longer than the time it takes to read this story. For the man born blind this story has lasted a lifetime.

To be born blind, whose fault was that anyway? His parents? The blind man’s lack of faith? Whoever or whatever, it has kept and continues to keep the blind man from living life fully. That is, until he meets Jesus, who heals him in a dramatic way. The blind man can’t even begin to fathom what has happened or who he stands before. As he proclaims, “All I know I was blind but now I see!” His parents testify to his identity.

Blindness is so much more than physical sight. I know many people that can see but have very poor vision. That is why 2020Vision is so important. If I only see with my eyes, then I will continue to order far more food than I need or is healthy. Genetics and a host of other factors may give me good eyesight, but it is faith that grants me the vision for life. How hard is that? Even the man cured of his blindness, at first does not know what has happened to him. Faith is an acquired taste. It takes time and a greater appreciation of things that matter that allow us to see. Have you taken a vision test lately? You may be surprised at how well you see!!


Support our ministry. There is much to consider!
