For Father's Day Pam and Emily took me to The VOID at Disney Springs.  The VOID is a virtual reality experience. It offers  the ability  to travel into your favorite movie or video game. Pam and Emily picked the Star Wars adventure for me.  The "Adventure Guides" led us into a waiting room where we received our backpacks and head gear. We were then led to an empty  concrete walled room. When leaving the room, our guide instructed us, "Pull down your goggles and the adventure will begin."  Immediately we were immersed into the Star Wars story. We became Rebel Spies, dressed as Storm Troopers. Every sight, every sound, what we felt and even what we were smelling were astonishingly real.  I quickly removed my goggles for a "reality check."  In the end, we battled our way through the game. My heart nearly burst from my chest during our epic final battle with Darth Vader.  As we left The VOID with our hearts pounding, we could not believe how quickly it was over. Our twenty minute adventure felt like two. We both wished we could go back and do it all over again. The Apostle Paul encourages us making the most of the time. The older I get, the more I am reminded time is a precious commodity. It is limited, and we must spend it wisely. How do you spend your time? Do you spend it loving your family and loving others? Do you spend it doing good? I invite you to spend some time in worship this weekend. Join us in prayer, Bible Study, and worship as we spend time with God. What could be more important?
