Climbing wall confidence

“Come on, Nathan! Just a little bit higher and you’ll be at the top!”“I can’t—I want to come down!”“Nathan, remember that you are in God’s hands. He’s always there to catch you and hold you up, and you will always be safe. When you get to the top, you can come down into God’s hands!”

I started going to Christian Science summer camp six years ago, and there I tried rock climbing for the first time ever. I had always been afraid of heights, and that first climb really put me to the test. I didn’t actually make it all the way up to the top that day, but the experience and the words the counselor said to me have always stuck with me. Camp helped me get over my fear of heights in a great way, and it also opened me up to trying new experiences and being more willing to learn new things about Christian Science.
