Nineteenth Sunday of Pentecost

The Lord Opens the Eyes of the Blind

Psalm 146: 8

Losing one's sight is a terrible loss. There was no cure for people in Bible times who were born blind (John 9: 25). They believed that God was punishing them especially: they could not participate in worship.

Ask the children if they can recognize each other just by their eyes, and ask them to draw the eyes of their classmates.

Supply markers, crayons and good white drawing paper. Or you could make collages, layering and gluing colored paper.

Let them make eyelashes and eyebrows out of curled black or brown paper (construction paper will hold a curl if wrapped tightly around a pencil), and let them add glitter to the pupils for catch lights.

Use chenille stems for eyeglasses.
