Why am I doing these things? Why did I go back to Viet Nam? Why travel to Honduras on a medical mission? Why am I tilting at windmills? Why do I want loud rock n' roll music at my church?
Because its is time - and it is right - and because I need passion.
Passion is one of the things that makes life worthwhile. I have trouble understanding people who wish to escape passion. It would be like being married, yet not making love to your spouse. Passion, not the intellect, is the mover of life. Without passion, religion is just another exercise for the brain. Life has been good to me when I am passionate.
