A Different Perspective - August 22

Exhibit Number 850

by Berni Dymet

John 14:27 Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you.

A few months ago I saw the weirdest thing on TV; these young people, sprinting through a cavernous chamber in a grand old art gallery in London. Every thirty seconds - a sprinter would race through so fast; you'd think their life depended on it.

Now they called this "art."

Well, the other day, I found myself during a spare hour or so at the Tate Gallery in London. And blow me down, if I'm not almost bowled over by a sprinter. 

I couldn't believe it - it was that thing I'd seen on TV. And all these months later - they were still running every thirty seconds. In fact, its art exhibit number 850.

I couldn't get over the fact that they were still sprinting - all these months later. Weren't they exhausted??

I don't know, I wonder whether we don't sometimes live our lives that way; running as though our lives depended on it.  And all along, Jesus is whispering "My peace I leave with you. My peace I give to you."

Hmm.
