It’s amazing how much you can learn just by taking a short trip. In our churches trustee’s meeting we were discussing a proposed landscaping change to our graveyard. These was much discussion about how the changes might effect things such as visibility, how close they might be to nearby graves, etc. Diagrams were drawn on a white board but there was still a lot of uncertainty.
Finally we made a two-minute walk, from our air conditioned conference toom to the actual location of the proposed changes. Like the bline man when the scales fell from his eyes all was suddenly much clearer.
We could’ve stayed in our comfortable environment and our state of uncertainness, but instead we stepped out and were able to see things clearly. It’s wonderful how a change of perspective can change your understanding.
