Rose Colored Glasses

Perhaps you've seen this video. William, now turning 66 years old, has a condition of color blindness. There are many types of color blindness which distort the colors of the world around them.

Well, for his birthday present, family members chipped in and purchased him a special pair of sunglasses. A quick search showed these glasses could be around 500 beans! These glasses are called Enchroma glasses. They somehow adjust the light entering his eyes. So when William wears the glasses, his eyes can somehow perceive the adjusted light and this enables him to see colors.

Even though I had seen this message in other places of scripture, this Psalm gave me the opportunity to use my pastoral experience to preach it in a new way. I found this was deeply profound and enlightening as I prepared to bring this message to my church family. I pray that the theme of God as King continues to be aware of as I read the Bible.

If you are so inclined to want to hear or read the message, it is av…
