Fine, chant the lyrics if that’s your pre-game, but know the better message to spread before you get wherever it is that you’re going. And I know you maybe don’t know where that is yet. Trust me, I know firsthand. But that’s ok. None of us do exactly right now – but we can know for sure where it is that we should want to end up later. Look at it as the lesser of two evils swarming around in your constantly conflicted brain: when has doing good for others ever made you feel worse about yourself?
As promised, more on the Christian Mission class for which I find myself reading for days on end and wanting to immediately pack up and move to Cambodia. Or, at least to the corner of Creighton and Hanna.
The first assignment was an open-ended “write your own personal theology of mission.” No idea. But I turned it in on time nonetheless and received it back last Thursday, fully graded. Let’s just say since I’m not at 100% right now, I have some work to do in order to do better…for others.
Side note: CliffsNotes version is don’t wait to go anywhere other than where you already are in order to make a difference. In 27 minutes, that means RediMed for me. Happy Sunday.
