“Mirror, Mirror, on the Wall . . .” – Reflections
Bible Text: 1 Corinthians 13:12, James 1:23 – 25 | Speaker: Rev. Dr. Carolyn Scanlan-Holmes | “Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.”
― Søren Kierkegaard
When the Apostle Paul talked about seeing in a mirror dimly, he wasn’t kidding as the mirrors in his day were made from highly polished metals such as copper or brass and the reflection was not the greatest quality. Since the 1600s, mirrors have been made from plate glass with a backing of silver covered by coatings of copper, lacquer, and paint. Mirrors do not transmit light but reflect it. The angle at which light strikes a mirror is exactly equal to the angle at which the light is reflected back. Therefore, the image reflected is a “mirror image” of the original. (Look this up on Wikipedia and you too can sound like you know what you are talking about.)
Did you know God has provided a mirror for your life? Modern glass mirrors reflect only the physical aspects of our life, but God’s mirror reflects everything else: the spiritual, mental and emotional aspects of your life. On Sunday we will consider how God is reflecting in our own lives and how we can seek to see the world as God does. Join us Sunday for “Mirror, Mirror, on the Wall . . .” – Reflections.
