Scripture Reading: The Healing of Blind Bartimaeus
Some of you have heard me talk about my friend and colleague, the Reverend Mark Showalter. Mark Showalter served our neighboring UCC Church in Genoa City for a number of years before moving to Iowa where he is semi-retired for health reasons. Mark’s the same age as myself but Mark is type 1 diabetic. Mark permanently lost his sight shortly after college. Mark has been an excellent example to me, and to others, of one who has overcome the many challenges of being disabled.
