“Seeing Our Blind Spots”

Rev. Axel Gehrmann and Worship Associate Bob Sadler

When I was learning to drive a car, my driving instructor was at pains to point out that before changing lanes I should always turn my head to be sure there wasn’t a car driving next to me. Looking in the rear-view mirror was not enough. Somewhere between my peripheral vision and the mirror’s image was area I couldn’t see, and very easily forgot: a blind spot. Whether we seek to drive safely, to live wisely, or to fulfill Dr. King’s dream, our best intentions are often not enough, unless we are mindful of our blind spots.
