A Note From Lucille Olson
Living Courageously
 
    Living life is so much more than just being alive!  Truly living is being responsive to both our joys and our sorrows, allowing ourselves to explore the depth of our feelings.  So often I have approached life tentatively, fearfully, avoiding what I perceive might become hurtful.  Yet it has always been from the upsets and difficulties that I have learned what kind of stuff I am made of.  Isn't that the greatest of all possible gifts?

    It seems natural for us to desire to be comfortable in life.  Perhaps we subconsciously want to feel the kind of comfort and safety we experienced in the womb.  We seek comfort that nurtures our soul and touches the heart, like having our own special warm blanket that we can carry around with us.  But seeking comfort and safety can keep us from living life fully.  Rev. Sharon Ketchum says, A ministers role is to comfort the afflicted, and afflict the comfortable."  To me that means when we are too comfortable we are not engaged in living a fully meaningful life.
    
    There is more life beyond what I can experience with my five senses.  There is that indwelling Spirit that divine Presence within me, which lifts me up and guides me through the complexities of life.

    Fear is based upon doubt in ourselves and in a God who has promised to be with us always.  When I have the courage to live without letting fear control me, I feel more alive!  It compares to watching TV in color instead of black and white.  Jumping into life with both feet allows me to get more out of life and is also a good way to discover the potential of my true self.
