Longwood Gardens is beautiful. That’s a given.  But we had to take some time to reflect on why.


What better place to reflect on beauty than in the reflection that was there.


Sometimes you have to look really hard to see the reflection, like in the picture above.  Other times the reflection is right there in your face, but not exactly clear though either.


Regardless of what reflects back to you, what you see is not all there is.


Lesson for church: We are both saint and sinner – one a reflection of the other.  Sometimes one seems clearer than the other.  Yet, sometimes we mix up which is which.
