Looking for a different Perspective?

It feel to me like the world is changing in huge and unexpected ways. Donald Trump is going to be president of the USA, we are working out what Brexit means here in the UK. We even had had the ridiculous situation where the government had to stop and consider if they were going to let unaccompanied refugee children into the UK. As I watch the news it often leaves me feeling upset as I see the pain and turmoil that exists in what should be a wonderful world.

Recently I heard some news that I found completely overwhelming as someone was telling me about a situation that was unfolding before them that seemed beyond fixing.

As we live in this chaotic and changing world I believe that we need a different perspective.

The glass brings everything that is unclear in the background into focus.

There is so much that I see and hear that I find upsetting and confusing but instead of despairing and hiding I want to talk to God and seek his perspective.

In taking the picture, the photographer has focused on the glass and has seen the background through it. My hope is that I can learn more consistently to do the same with God as I seek and trust in his perspective and allow him to lead me forward.

Do you need a different perspective?

Hi, my name is Graeme and I’m married to a very patient wife. We have 4 children, 2 rabbits, a terrapin (and not a lot of peace and quiet!). I’m a Regional Minister for the Eastern Baptist Association in the UK (the views expressed in this blog are my own) and I am especially interested in making Church accessible to people who have no church background and also in how we disciple people in order to equip them to live out their faith in the 21st Century.
