Last week a blood vessel burst in my left eye. At first, I was entertained by the blood trails swirling in my field of vision. But soon the trails dissipated and a dense impenetrable cloud formed over my sight. This is not the first time this has happened, but is no less disconcerting for that.
Losing eyesight in one eye means not only a loss of vision for half of what's before you, it also means loss of depth perception. I discovered this fact when I went to pour milk into my morning coffee and promptly poured it over the kitchen counter. This followed by numerous accidents involving eye-hand coordination, until I learned to slow down and think things through.
Parking the car has become a bit of a challenge, and I hardly trust myself to backup. And if you see an old white truck coming towards you hugging the center line, well, give me a wide berth.
So, it seems, we need two eyes for accurate depth perception. So it is in our life together. One perspective rarely gives us the depth to navigate life. Better to have two or three perspectives on an issue or problem to perceive the wisest course of action. Even when we don't agree on our perspectives, knowledge of our different views deepens our wisdom for life.
I look forward to receiving clear sight in my left eye. And I celebrate the different perspectives we bring to faith and life.
