Many days living out here in Hollywood/LA — seems like a surreal adventure, as we are (by the grace of God) — attempting to continue planting missional churches in the urban area of LA. Other days — it does not feel like an adventure — it just feels like survival.
With that in mind, I went to Starbucks early this morning to drink coffee, to read, and to collect my thoughts. I read the following quote on the back of my Starbucks cup…
It is by Maria Fadiman, a geographer, ethnobotanist (not sure what that means?), and a National Geographic Emerging Explorer, and her quote goes like this:
“I used to think that going to the jungle made my life an adventure. However, after years of unusual work in exoctic places, I realize that it is not how far off I go or how deep into the forest I walk that gives my life meaning. I see that LIVING LIFE FULLY is what makes my life- anyone’s life, no matter where they do or do not go- an adventure”.

That is a good thought for all of us to remember. One does not have to move to the end of the earth – for life to be an adventure. Living fully in Christ today — makes one’s life full.
