14 years old

What was the most significant thing you did during your teenage years? Let’s say at age 14? Most average 14-year-olds spend their time eating, sleeping, playing video games and dreading homework. Apparently, David Ashby is anything but average.
This past summer, David walked from his home in Orlando Florida all the way to Washington DC.  Why? He did it to raise awareness of and draw attention to the 1.4 million homless children in US.
David treked 1,100 miles. When he wasn’t walking, he was sleeping on the street and eating only what he could find.  His experienced is chronicled on his blog “Helping step by step.”
Wow. My birthday is coming up next week and I can no longer remember everything I was doing at 14. I know this….most of it was for myself and many of my activities were not healthy or helpful to anyone. Way to go David!

re: the random-ness

Husband. Father. Senior Pastor of Parkview Community Church in Glen Ellyn, IL.

Ok...so you've located the place where I put down my random thoughts. The key word here is random: music, sports, art, food, books, news, spiritual musings, weird stories, etc. I'm especially interested in how everyday experiences of life intersect with the ancient stories of Scripture. Thanks for reading.
