To begin my sermon, I’m going to need four volunteers.
Now, I have two requirements for these volunteers:
the first is, you need to be able to catch a middle-aged body;
specifically, my body;
and the second is, you need to be trustworthy.
My physical safety depends on you meeting both of these requirements.
That’s because I’m going to do a trust fall.
Now, I’m sure many of you have done this at least once in your life,
either at summer camp when you were young
or as one of those dreaded team-building exercises as an adult.
In a trust fall, the expectations are simple.
I’m going to fall, and they’re going to catch me.
- James 2:1 - 17
