With all the pretty miniature lights that adorned many a Christmas tree put away, we have entered a new year that begins with color swatches between black and white. Every once in a while, the sky will defy the winter mandate with an array of robust blue, but for the most part if you are not living in a southern region, you will see for the first three months plenty of dull gray expanse.
Gray gets a bad rap not just for its lackluster identity, but also for the color’s association with age, although the Bible does speak of gray hair as a crown of glory.
But what is most troublesome with gray is when it connotes compromise, especially theological compromise.
