Pool of Siloam

I have moved on to doing walks around Leura and will cover these over the next few days. From Gordon Falls picnic area there is a pleasant track that starts in the dry forest and descends into the rain forest (by more steps than I like) down to the Pool of Siloam.

Words to walk with:
John 9:1-7 from the Holy Bible – New International Version
"As he [Jesus] went along, he saw a man blind from birth. His disciples asked him, Rabbi, who sinned, this man or his parents, that he was born blind? Neither this man nor his parents sinned, said Jesus, but this happened so that the work of God might be displayed in his life …
Having said this, he spat on the ground, made some mud with the saliva, and put it on the man's eyes. Go, he told him, wash in the Pool of Siloam (this word means Sent). So the man went and washed, and came home seeing."
