A New Way of Seeing Things
by Rev. Scott Andrews
During a recent Lectionary Bible Study, I noticed how many people around the tables needed glasses. Some wore them all the time, some needed them only to read, and some wear contact lenses. Regardless, in this microcosm of our congregation there was a definite need for corrective lenses (in whatever form).
I recently did some research and found out that 64% of adults in our country utilizes corrective lenses of some form or another, and 20% of children and youth need them as well. I found these statistics rather alarming. I also found out that these percentages have remained steady for several decades. This got me to thinking.
