I still remember the feelings of anticipation as we waited in the fairly short line to go on the ride. You could actually look down inside to see people spinning before it was your turn to go on the ride. Often I hoped as I waited that no one got sick and threw up before we got in. Of course, I also hoped that I wouldn’t throw up when it was my turn to go in. (Fortunately, I never did.)

Have you ever considered choosing one single word to describe your expectation for a whole year? A few years ago I chose the word Joy. I wanted my year to be characterized by Joy. Today as I attended a meeting of coaches on the Eastside in Redmond, several coaches shared their words for this year.

For as long as I can remember, I have loved maps. I don’t know why. I’m fascinated by them. I’m not talking about street maps (although I’ve got great memories of driving across the country with our AAA TripTik Travel Planner in my hands and reading all the details to my dad of what was ahead.)

Do you dream of the future? Do you picture a reality that’s different than what you experience today? I’ve been dreaming lately of a different future for the Church. A future that I believe is based on the mission of Jesus.
