“The Glory of God is man fully alive.” ~ St. Ireneaus
He convinced me this was how we should spend our morning. Climbing over 1,000 feet up a mountain to Harvard Lakes, just outside of Buena Vista, CO. With his wife, Diane, our colleague, Joy, and me following behind, Ken Davis led the charge.
Truth is, he left us behind. While we walked up the mountain, he ran. About an hour in, long after the lack of oxygen worsened my dementia, I wondered why I’d consented.
But then we reached our destination. A glass-like mountain lake sat cradled in evergreens, rocky outcroppings, and reedy brush, with the Rocky Mountains back-dropping the canvas. A view impossible to manufacture without a thousand-foot climb.
The beauty eased my wheezing. And as we caught our breath, we talked about his new book, Fully Alive: A Journey that Will Change Your Life. He told me why the message of this book has become a flaming torch he’s determined to carry as long as he breathes. As I listened to him talk, I looked at the view and realized we’d done precisely what he professes to believe. Right there on the side of a Colorado mountain.
Below is the video of that conversation. But be warned: not a single shower was involved in the making of this interview. Neither were make-up or hair stylist, for Ken or myself. But what you will see is nature’s beauty and a man burning with a passion for people to live—really live!—the way God intended.
