A Hero's Journey

Joseph Campbell is an American author and literary professor who wrote in his book, The Hero with a Thousand Faces, that all hero myths follow a similar pattern.

In a gist, the pattern consists of the hero being called to an adventure. In responding to the call, he/she will face many challenges and trials. At the same time, the hero will meet people who will support him/her on his/her journey. In the end, he/she will succeed and bring about a transformation to his/her character and usually new perspective to those around him/her.

In the Touched by Grace Today video "The Hero's Journey," I followed the life of Jesus as our one true hero.

I believe we are all called to be heroes, but not all of us respond to this call equally. Some, reluctantly. Others, with all the passion, effort, and endurance they can muster. And others may not follow at all.

In the video below, "A Hero's Journey," I tell the story of one woman's quest to follow the call. In most people's minds, she has not achieved her goal. True. But God had other goals for her that probably was not as conspicuous as many would see.

May we all follow our true hero in our journey. God bless.
