“THE PROBLEM WITH SUPERMAN” | REV. JULIA HAMILTON

I was once given a little hanging decoration, one of those sort of artsy things with wires and beads and a suction cup that attaches to your window. It said, in silvery flowing script, “Leap and the net shall appear!” But I’m not really a “leap and the net shall appear” kind of person. Don’t get me wrong – I do enjoy a good leap every now and then, but I am also very interested in nets. There are only few times in my life I can say that I have truly thrown caution to the wind – I am much more likely to set caution gently down on the ground for a bit while I take a quick spin around the block.

So as we launch into the theme of risk this month, I have found myself challenged to take a look at my own personal comfort zones and willingness to leap into the unknown. I have been looking for new ways to understand risk.
