Blenheim Palace is one of the most photographed buildings in England. Many pictures also encompass its lake with the Grand Bridge. At first sighting, we think that it is made of solid stone. But it has a secret. For, inside the bridge are many rooms that were used to entertain the guests of the Dukes of Marlborough. Today, these are closed to the public as some are full of rubble, others are submerged in water, and one needs a boat to enter.
Christ didn’t see people differently, he saw their hidden ‘rooms’. He perceived secret strengths and abilities in others that we overlook. That’s why he asked Peter to found the church with his unseen leadership and determination. He wasn’t disappointed.
I wonder what he sees in me?
