Comfort is my drug. I think it is the drug of our generation.
I don't mean comfort as in "no change", but comfort as in - "I will do the things that make me feel good", and live within that zone.
I have a hard time getting out of my comfort zone. Drop-in is probably the most out of comfort I get, because I'm serving people way out of my usual demographic. And funnily enough, it is one of the most rewarding things I do. Getting out of my comfort zone, while it seems hard, is a beautiful thing.
I'd like to do it more often, but my usual excuse is a lack of energy - emotional or otherwise.
Going to Orange was an out of comfort zone experience, and it was one of the best things i've ever done. Going into ministry for two years has also been an out of comfort zone experience, and it's teaching me heaps.
However, it doesn't take long for the thing which used to be uncomfortable, to become comfortable, does it?
What do you think are other 'drugs' for our/your generation?
