"Comfort became the enemy of community."  ~Christie Purifoy, "Placemaker"

When it rains here in Honiara, this is my morning "wogging" view: a vast maze of mirrored obstacles.  I choose to make it an opportunity to become stronger and more agile.  

" in harmony with one another; be sympathetic, love as brothers, be compassionate and humble"  1 Peter 3:8

When I'm pushed into uncomfortable places, my natural tendency is to retreat into myself.  Like the proverbial child who goes and sucks his thumb in a corner for comfort.  But my discomfort offers me the opportunity to build ask for help.  And when I'm kicked out of my comfort zone, I'm more likely to offer help to others and to build tighter bonds of community.
