Several years ago I went with a group of men to an obstacle course in Northport. Some people call these a "ropes" course. The goal is for your group to move through a series of obstacles as you build trust and a spirit of teamwork. For me the most challenging obstacle is the "trust" platform. At this obstacle, each person must take turns climbing up to a platform that is located 5 or 6 feet above ground level. Once you get on the platform, you are to fold your arms, turn your back, and fall from the platform into the waiting arms of your friends. That requires a great deal of trust. That is what occurs in healthy relationships. We trust the other person with our lives.

(From a sermon by Leland Patrick, "The Finer Points of Love (part 4)" 2/23/2009)
