It seems that one day Sherlock Holmes and his assistant, Watson, went camping. As the night wore on, Sherlock woke up, leaned over, and asked Watson,
“What do you see?”
“Sherlock, I see the North Star, which has helped guide us to this spot. Beyond that I see the Big Dipper and the tail of Orion. I also can make out the edges of the Milky Way and know that there are unique verses expanding beyond that’….
Watson was about to continue his rapturous explanation when suddenly Sherlock elbowed him and hissed,
“Watson, you idiot, someone has stolen our tent!
Jesus once described himself as coming ‘like a thief in the night’. I love the idea of his coming to steal our tent – the tent of our limited perspective – the tent of our fragile and segmented understandings – the tent that we think is keeping us safe, but is really just keeping us from seeing the universe.
Let Jesus steal the tent of our perspective – the tent of our small mindedness and limited thinking.
