Adventurous Life

A friend of mine sent along this quote last night: “The adventure of the Christian life begins when we dare to do what we would never tackle without Christ.” (William Penn) It is especially poignant because the school where we work has recently unveiled a new campaign slogan, which to me is too postmodern and/or relativisitic: “Your Adventurous Life”. What has continually bothered me about the phrase is that it excludes any sense of communal experience. Are we selling an independent experience, or properly demonstrating that formation (educational, spiritual, emotional) is best done in community? By our marketing material, I am not so sure. But, seen through the lens of this quote, I admit I am more excited about the possibilities. Now, we just need to somehow experience adventure together… “You Adventurous Life Lived In Community.” Yeah, it just doesn’t work…
