Third Sunday of Easter – C1
Acts 9:1-6, (7-20)
Little Shop of Horrors has a lovely song, Suddenly Seymour.
You may want to begin making some additional connections:
Suddenly Saul (breathing threats descends upon a follower of Jesus)
Suddenly Jesus (or light) (stops violence)
Suddenly Scales (arrive - justice revealed up-close-and-personal)
Suddenly Vision (though not suddenly acted upon)
Suddenly Ananias (with healing hands, not violent ones)
Suddenly Scales (depart - lesson learned)
[Note: Another helpful approach is by Walter Bruggemann.]
