Reflection for the Week - January 14

Mirrors reflect too clearly and thereby falsify who we are. Perhaps, a better indicator of identity would be a prism, which has the capacity to create something new out of something old. In a sense, this metaphor may be a theologically fitting one for what God is doing for us. Self re-imaging and re-shaping will never have much to do with a physical appearance, as they desperately require a reliable representative who is able to transform the seen into the real.
