Some of you may know that I'm an active part of the "Advance" project. By active part I mean I'm acting as a booster, making calls on the call team, attending desserts and considering how much lettuce to throw in the plate. The purpose of this post is not to extol the virtues of the "multi-campus" experience but rather to explore what it means to be a part of a body. I'm going to use myself as an example. Now using oneself as an example is risky business. There's always a chance someone will take your introspection as hubris. Please know that it's not my intent to hold myself up as some sort of exemplar. We all tell stories that spring from the well of our experience and relationships. So in a way anyone who picks up a pen is playing the sage. But that doesn't mean I have it all together. Far from it. A quick glance at past posts (like this one) will show you that I consider my journey quite incomplete - but when I arrive I will let you know.
Meanwhile let's spend a moment talking about Advance.
