Our pastor's message on Sunday was about access. As a Christian our faith is based upon the belief that Jesus purpose in coming to earth was to reconcile our relationship with God the Father giving us direct access to Him. I got that message, but I also learned something else on Sunday. I think it is important to dream big. The personal story that David Loveless was speaking about was a list of accomplishments that he wanted to achieve. One of the items on that list was something that he had no access to on his own. He wanted to land in a plane on a nuclear aircraft carrier. If you ask me that is a pretty big dream. In a some ways this may have been the biggest "dream" that was on his list, because there is seemingly noway to get that kind of access short of graduating from Top Gun school. Five years ago, he was actually invited to facilitate a meeting on an aircraft carrier in the middle of the Pacific ocean by the Admiral of the Pacific fleet.
I thought about that dream which was not intended to satisfy some bigger purpose, although it probably did. (I don't imagine they host unimportant people in unimportant meetings on nuclear aircraft carriers.) I believe that David just thought this would be something really cool to do. Yesterday was our national holiday celebrating the life and contributions of Dr. M.L. King, and I cannot imagine anyone not thinking of his "I have a dream" speech as being pivotal in American history. Call me introspective, but I guess the message Sunday and the MLK holiday yesterday got me thinking about big dreams. They can be scary, because they are big and they should be audacious and seemingly unachievable. I think a big dream should be something that changes at least your life, the lives of the people around you and maybe the world. As 2010 kicks off the next decade, dream big.
