The Hero’s Journey: Begin where you are!
The beginning point of The Hero’s Journey is right smack in the middle of normal life – The Ordinary World. For Jesus, that was the year 4BCE. By all accounts, it was a year of crisis. Political turmoil, revolutions and violence had once again swept over what was already a very chaotic land. Martyrdom and messianic prophecies gained popularity. Jesus grew up in this world. It gave structure, meaning and direction to his life. Our world is no less chaotic. The 20th century gave the world a legacy of revolutions in Eastern Europe, Asia, Latin America, and the Middle East, as well as revolutionary technological advances. The beginning of the 21st century included the 9/11 attacks, and has continued with an explosion of technology. The structure, meaning and direction of our lives seems to have changed radically from what we knew as “ordinary” up until now. Yet, it is the “here and now” that prepares us for the Hero’s Journey. This Sunday, we take a look at where we are and where we might be headed on The Hero’s Journey.
