Blinded by the Light
Based on: Acts 9:1-19a
When light from heaven flashed around Saul, on his way to Damascus to persecute the followers of the Way, he fell to the ground and lost sight. The event changed Saul to proclaim the gospel of Jesus to the world. As God has changed Saul, we ask God to shape us into children who rejoice in knowing and proclaiming Jesus to the world.
