Adventure is always close at hand in this kind of work, so when Rikki, one of our producers, dragged me into a Jerk chicken fast food restaurant this week, I headed into the unknown. I was crossing a cultural barrier into a stand up counter of ethnic cuisine typical of the kind that are all over Toronto, but the kind I rarely eat at. I’d give the experience about a 8/10; Rikki’s company counted for at least 7 of those points.

Much the same happened when we worked on the Science Fiction show this week. Never (in recent memory) have I haggled with our writer, Patricia Paddey, as much as I did on this content. I kept wondering why my imagination just didn’t work in that realm, what was wrong with my ability to imagine, to ponder, why did it not make any sense to me that people were finding spiritual ideas in their Science Fiction books? Patricia helped me navigate, and again, the best part was the friendship we strengthened through the haggling, and being helped to see the genre with new eyes.

I couldn’t help but think that it must feel that way for those I invite into the Christian story. The adventure should be fun, haggle friendly, patient and full of good source material. “For God so loved the world that He gave” ……gave the ultimate experience of crossing the fence between our differences and having Jesus Christ come and live with people. But oh how He gave.
