Flying Blind in Invitation
Flying Blind is to feel one’s way, proceed by guesswork. I feel like this whenever I am asked to assemble anything for the first time even with instructions, so I’m flying blind . This hyperbolic expression dates from World War II, when it was used by pilots who could not see the horizon and therefore had to rely on instruments. It was transferred to broader use soon afterward. I can feel as if I am flying blind when I invite someone for the first time. I don’t know the reaction but I can rely on the instruments in front of me which say “When you pass through the waters, I will be with you;and when you pass through the rivers, they will not sweep over you. When you walk through the fire, you will not be burned; the flames will not set you ablaze.” So invite today and fly blind.
