The true adventure
Many of my favorite things to do are actively intense and thrilling, yet others are laid back and chilled-out. Climbing, biking, boarding, slacklining, reflecting on life, and reading are a few of those. And prior to getting more involved in my practice of Christian Science, drinking, smoking, and trying drugs with my buddies felt like just another “adventure.”
I partied hard through my teens and beyond because it seemed like a fun and casual thing to do to bond with others. And though I felt content living the partying lifestyle, I was also seeking answers to life’s deeper questions, which regularly eluded me. I wanted to be better in my classes in school, in dating, choosing a fulfilling career path, staying healthy—basically lead a more fulfilling life.
Sunday School at the local Church of Christ, Scientist, was the last place I expected to find something that I thought was adventurous and cool, and would also help fulfill some of these deeper desires I had.
