Christmas Lights Inspire Endless Possibilities
An illuminating spectacle at Anchor Baptist Church in Brevard gives visitors a source of holiday cheer, but the designer of the display may surprise you.
Corey Johnson is legally blind. He has a form of albinism that affects his hair, skin, and eyes. But it doesn't affect his grand vision.
"It's our free gift to the community for God's blessing through the year," says Johnson, who says he can only see about three feet ahead. So visually, he can't fully appreciate the display he began working on back in July.
"The payoff is to see families come through," Corey says. "When my parents brought me home from the hospital they didn't know if I could see or not. So my mom sat and prayed that I could see the lights on the Christmas tree."
Ever since, Corey's been fascinated with holiday lights.
"What he lacks in one area, it seems the Lord has given him a double portion in other areas to make up for," says Pastor Randy Barton.
The display is open to the public at Anchor Baptist Church in Brevard for free. It's open Thursday through Sunday, from 6 to 10pm.
