1 TRIP 2 ADVENTURES
Two years ago, I found myself biking under the sizzling sun, breathing heavily, climbing a steep incline in the Black Hills of South Dakota with a number of Christian Science teens from my National Leadership Council, a group that's associated with Discovery Bound. (DiscoveryBound is a program that provides year-round fellowship for Christian Scientists and their friends.) This bike ride was meant to stretch our limits and would give us many opportunities along the way to rely on God for strength and direction.
For the middle part of the excursion, we had a full day of mountain biking planned. That day, everybody was really excited. We buckled up our helmets, tightened the straps, and set off for the bike trail. The group eventually broke off into smaller groups based on each person's capabilities. I led one of the groups, which included six other people. Our goal was to cycle 15 miles out into the hills and back, a round trip of 30 miles.
We agreed that biking down the first 15-mile stretch was easy, especially since the last six miles were straight downhill. Feeling the warm breeze against our sweaty faces as we cruised the downhill was a real enjoyment.
