I was praying in Emmanuel Chapel, and found myself studying the textured glass windows. A series of rectangular angles, they create unusual shafts of light that decorate the chapel’s stone walls. It occurred to me that the chapel’s windows are a bit like heaven. They send in light, and though their texture blocks a clear view of what’s on the other side, we expect it’s something beautiful. I Corinthians 13:12 came to mind: “Now we see things imperfectly, like puzzling reflections in a mirror, but then we will see everything with perfect clarity.” All that I know now is partial and incomplete, but then I will know everything completely, just as God now knows me completely. What a wonderful something to look forward to!
