The Main Quest – What is Your Quest?

Greetings Dear Reader,

For some of you Dear Reader this will evoke images of Monty Python.  I am good with that.  I see the levity in the idea of questing.  I also see that we so often forget what the main quest is.

I wish to draw a distinction between something first.  People use the word “religious” to generalize about faith and following.  It is also used to dismiss, reject, and marginalize.  The distinction is that those who follow Christ are not religious.  They are part of a family of faith on a journey home.

The main quest is to get home.  The journey is fraught with dangers and side quests.  So many things work to distract us from the path that leads to our destination.  The quest for now is to follow. 

This begs a larger question for those who do not have faith.  What is your quest?  What is the chief end of man?   There are as many answers to this as there are variants of unbelief or other belief. 

My quest is to follow.  My journey is to get home.  The journey will have challenges, dangers, opportunities, and rewards.   My responsibility is to stay the quest.  There will be guidance when needed.  There will be provision and care.  The one I follow is Cleric, Wizard, Warrior, and Rogue.  How about you Dear Reader?  What is your quest?

Wishing you joy in the journey,
