Sermon Discussion Questions
Get to know me:
Instructions: The purpose of these questions is to generate responses that are self-revealing and informative. Feel free to ask all of these questions to your group or simply choose the one that best fits your group.
What would life be like as a blind person?
What about our culture makes it hard to see what is really true? (Ex: social media, fake news, access to so much information, etc)

Instructions: The purpose of these questions is to apply the main points from the weekend message on John 9.
We all overlook things from time to time. What are your blind spots?
