Seeing Through the Window Clearly … Ouch!

We often refer to Paul’s description of our lack of clarity this side of the fulfilled Kingdom of God. Seeing through a dim glass clearly describes attempts to get our being around the depths of God’s truth and love. After our return from a trip to Rose Island, otherwise known as Robinson Carusoe, I headed out to the porch to chat with Jordon and Mike. I looked straight out the sliding glass door and discovered it closed as my forward progress was suddenly halted. In the process my sunglasses cut my forehead leaving me with a souvenir of sorts for my trip to Nassau.

Now for those of you still laughing, I might throw in the fact that we spent the day on an island in the Bahamas. We snorkeled and saw some colorful fish. We took in a large amount of sun and rain. We cruised by the home of Tiger Woods. And, to top it off, I rode in a van with N.T. Wright and his wife Maggie. We discussed the circumstances and issues in the Anglican Communion.

I suffered a bit of a cut on the forehead. The evidence may indeed linger. The memory of a chat with Bishop Tom will mark me more.

    That sounds like some of your basketball moves :). The beach is wonderful, especially when you live minutes away like I do. I’m trying to make you jealous enough to come here for a visit.
