The Pastor's Post
I love my sunglasses! I hadn't worn sunglasses for years but I got prescription sunglasses last summer for my hikes. But now I look for any reason to wear them. I like the way they look and I like how the world appears when I see through my darkened lenses.
In seminary, we studied hermeneutics, which is the understanding of how we interpret scripture and why we interpret scripture the way we do. In other words, what experiences do we bring to our scriptural interpretation? Or another way to think about it, what lens do we use as we study scripture.
During this Season of Lent, as we reflect on who we are in relationship to God and contemplate our journey with Jesus toward the cross, I would ask you to consider the lens you wear when studying scripture. And, to push that question even further, with what lens do you look at the world?
There's the old joke about the couple complaining day after day concerning their neighbor's dirty laundry that they can see hanging on the line and flopping in the wind. One day they are astounded to see the brightness and crispness of that clothesline laundry. After a few minutes their house keeper comes to tell them he just finished washing their windows.
Is our lens clean? I have quoted before a United Church of Christ Daily Devotion from a few years back that makes the point that there is no resurrection without death. But with death and resurrection, there is new life. Do we have a lens that allows us to see new life?
As I walk Skunk Creek, or get out for a hike (with my sunglasses), I am blown away with the colors that have burst forth because of all the moisture this winter. Even with my sunglasses, it is impossible to miss the brilliance of the super bloom. Friends, new life is all around us. Are we seeing it or do we wear lenses that only allow us to see the past. I hope this season you have lenses, sunglasses or otherwise, allowing for life to be seen and experienced in a whole new way.
Best wishes for the remainder of Lent and Happy Easter!
