Apr. 19 Rev. Sears, “A Matter of Perspective”: John and Janet Martin bought last year’s sermon at the auction.

A friend, whose mother was a prominent art collector, was telling me about some of his paintings. One is by Pablo Picasso, from the cubist period. When I asked him to describe it, he told me how he has to look at it from various angles to put everything together. Think of the different ways that you can describe one of your life experiences when you look at it from various perspectives.
