Conquering the waves of fear

The water level was breaking records. That’s what I’d been hearing even before the summer began. I had plans to be a counselor-in-training for the white-water rafting program at a camp for Christian Scientists in Colorado. White-water rafting is one of my favorite activities and has been one of my biggest passions for the past few years.

At first, I felt excited about the high water, because it would mean new challenges and an immense amount of fun. But then, fear crept in. I began feeling scared of all the things that could go wrong. The river community knows that high water is the best, but that it also comes with many risks and dangers. It didn’t help that it was also my first year on staff, which brought its own set of pressures.
