For those of you who don't know, I volunteered at Passion for the second year. It was an entirely different experience this time around--it wasn't fraught with life changing decisions or dramatic object lessons. It was more about serving when I didn't have anything more to give, so that He could fill me up. It was about becoming aware of my own selfishness and preconceived notions about God's mission for me in Boston. It reminded me that His plan here is bigger than I can ever ask or imagine.
I stood on a street corner and talked to people. I handed out hundreds of lunches. I laughed. I cried. I was in awe again. I think I know what David Crowder was getting at in Praise Habit. Life as worship...maybe that's a lesson that goes beyond taking a leap into uncertainty. Maybe that's the foundational lesson for everything else of value.
