Scripture Reading: The Healing of Blind Bartimaeus
Mark 10:46-52

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.
