O, [0000Pander T00ese 0000ines/00 We all have a tendency to be a bit blind. We tend to see things, not as they are, but as we are. Although ignorance is bliss, is this blindness the cause of some of the polarization in our nation today? Does this blind- ness cause us to be unhappy? The teachers that challenge me the most speak of being "whole." They say that becoming whole is the same journey as becoming holy. It is a journey of seeing and being aware. As we grow is awareness we will become more aware of God, ourselves, others, and things like joy. Jesus tells many stories in the Gospels designed to open our eyes a bit , wider. In the story of the Rich Young Man, Matthew 19:16-26, the man is invited to give everything away and put all his trust in Jesus. He can't and goes away sad. His blindness robbed him of the joy that is Jesus. He couldn't see that he could trust Jesus more than his wealth. In the Prodigal Son story, Luke 15:11-32, the older brother was a model of obedience and loyalty. When the younger brother comes home, he is invited to welcome him. He can't. He has lived a life in which there are no gifts, no forgiveness, and no joy. All must be earned. In the story of the Pharisee and the Tax Collector, Luke 18:9-14, it was the Pharisee who did everything fight according to the rules handed down by God Himself. Yet, he was blind to the one he was trying to serve. God had become his taskmaster and he had become a slave. He was blind to the freedom God grants in joy and love, the love that showed mercy to the tax collector. The qualities in the Pharisee, the older brother, and the rich man are what we tend to esteem. Our religious leaders tell us to be obedient like the Pharisee. Our parents raise us to be like the older brother. Our cul- ture tells us to be rich. In our modern day, perhaps the tax collector is someone who turned away from Christianity or was a draft dodger. Perhaps the younger brother was someone who gave his parents fits and was bailed out time | and again, only to fail again. In contrast to the rich man, there is some- I one who lives a simple, humble, and faithful life hardly noticed and al- ways dismissed by those scrambling to the top of society. We like to think that our journey to heaven, our arrival at a secure re- tirement, or even our happiness is a journey from success to success. But even the Yellow Brick Road had its potholes. Our journey to our prized destination has potholes too. But these potholes are not punishment, they i are designed to teach us who we are and who God is. These bumps in the road teach us to see and to give up our blindness. Maybe this story can help too: A man took his new dog out hunting. He shot a duck and it fell into the lake. The dog walked over the water and retrieved it. The man was flabbergasted! He shot another duck. Again, while the man stood in disbelief, the dog walked on top of the water to fetch the duck. The next day he invited his neighbor to go hunting with him. Each time one of the men shot a duck, the dog walked on the water to get it. Finally, the man asked his neighbor, "Do you notice anything funny about this dog?" The neighbor rubbed his chin pensively. "Yes," he finally said. "Come to think of it, I do! He can't swim!" Sometimes truth,joy, wonder, and God are hidden in plain sight right front of us. But in order to see, we must first let go of our blindne Peace be wlth YU"  ............... / t ) I Librarian's Corner By Vicki Grimli The Ortonville Public Library hours are Monday-Thursday 12-8 p.m. and Friday and Saturday 10-3 p.m. This is National Library Week, please see article elsewhere in the newspaper.
