These days, we are blind. We really, really wish it were not so. But in truth, right now we are all blind people.
Up until 2 or 3 weeks ago, most of us had established, predictable, and comfortable lives. We got out of bed, dressed, and went off to work or school or whatever else we did during the day. We met our friends for lunch at Maple Indian. We went to concerts and ball games.
On Sunday mornings, we came together in our church building to worship, socialize, and learn. In face-to-face relationships, we sang hymns, drank coffee, and shared bits and pieces of our lives with each other.
Back there in the good old days, we knew more or less what to expect from day to day.
