2. DISCONNECTED FROM THE WORLD AND SELF
My brother is a pilot and loves to fly aircraft. One day he asked my uncle to go with him for a ‘flip’. My uncle responded and said he would fly anywhere with my brother as long as he could keep one foot on the ground. Of course that would be impossible, but that is often how we want to live our faith lives. We want to fly in this regard, but then at the same time we want to stay connected to the safe, the known and the things we know make us feel secure. We need to disengage or disconnect from these things. We have to have the courage to take that ‘one foot off the ground’! We are tied to so many things.
