This Sunday we revisited the notion of asking. The last time we talked about this we were in James, this time we are coming at it through the Gospel according to St. Mark.
I have often been struck by the story of Bartimaeus, and not just because I saw my friend Brad play this particular blind person in a musical. There are so many interesting things that are going on in this short little story. There is the irony of the people who told him to “shut up” subsequently telling him to “cheer up” to his leaping to his feet.

Let me know what you think about the whole notion of asking for what we actually want . . . even if we sometimes don’t know what we want 🙂
