Do Life 2015: Super Hero Friday


It's a bird! It's a plane! No! It's.... Serve Seattle?

If you are going to do life, then please, please, just do it with a cape. Always.

Almost a year and a half ago, I started a little thing at work called "SuperHero Friday"

By started I mean that I wore a cape. Only me. Wearing a cape. Every Friday.

For. A. Year.

And yes, it was awesome. Thanks for asking.

All that being said, I hadn't kept up the tradition in awhile, and I blamed it on being so busy.

Which technically is true, but as a college professor used to say, "We make time for that which is important to us."

And you know what? He was right.

Cape wearing is important to me. Making people smile is important to me. Bringing laughter is important to me. So I wanted to bring it back.

Fortunately, I work and serve alongside some of the most epic ladies of all time at Serve Seattle.

(Shameless plug if you are 18-25 and don't know what to do with your summer. Check this out!)

I asked my small group a few weeks ago if they would want to bring SuperHero Friday back with a bang! Since they are so awesome, they enthusiastically said YES!

Last Monday we made 200 bags of candy. With capes. And stickers. #epic

cutest ever!
On Friday, with capes flowing behind us, we celebrated #superherofriday in the best way ever!

Swooping in to save the city, we took our bags of candy to three locations at Seattle's Union Gospel Mission. Basically, it was the best thing EVER!

People laughed. We laughed. I personally think I converted some people from being Batman fans to being Wonder Woman fans.

In case you didn't know, that's kind of a big deal.

All joking aside, if small bags of candy brought joy and laughter to the people, then dressing up in funky costumes and being crazy was worth it.

For what really matters at the end of the day, is that people feel the love of Jesus.

That my friends, is what doing life is all about.
