I was browsing my archives and found this dream I had last summer. Interesting how themes weave in and out of life, I’m right back there in this same spot again (probably never left):

I had a dream last night (its 7 am presently) about graduating from Fuller. In the dream when I walked across the stage to receive my diploma I had to say a few (very few) words about my time at Fuller. The words I came up with, in my dream, were “Life is mission”. I think that pretty well describes my time here at Fuller. Two years ago I came to here with a very different conception of church and mission (in some ways). I had bought into the seeker-sensitive, mega-church, contemporary worship (whatever that is) formula. Now I see church and mission as hopelessly and hopefully intertwined with one another. “Life is mission” sums up well my perspective these days, all life moving towards God’s kingdom reality in this place, our community, my family, and my soul.
