The definition of adventure is: a bold, usually risky undertaking; hazardous action of uncertain outcome. That certainly sums up the plot of the book of Daniel in the Old Testament. (Thats why we cleverly named our new series on Sunday’s “The Adventures of Daniel”)
Come to think of it, “a bold, usually risky undertaking; hazardous action of uncertain outcome” sums up the plot of almost every story of “biblical characters” found in scripture-especially Jesus!
Why is “adventure” not exactly the first word people think of when they think of church and Christianity?
Why does it seem that so much of teaching and preaching today seems to be more about how to avoid making “bold moves with unknown outcomes” and more about how to live a life of safety and security?
What is missing?
