This is a photo from the second time we visited the Grand Prismatic Spring. Quite a different view compared to our first visit 2 days earlier. The first day we were there, it was cold and drizzly. It was hard to see much of the water because there was so much steam rising. And with very little sun, the predominant color was grey. (Is grey a color?) The second visit, there was much less visible stream rising and the contrast in colors was striking.
I’m sure we have all had the experience of not “seeing” what if right before us the first time we encounter it. There are many instances in the New Testament that refer to individuals being prevented from seeing (understanding) what was happening. For me, this is another way to think about “perspective.”
