Philippe Petit, the man who walked the high wire between the Twin Towers in 1974, once said, “It’s very easy to walk on a wire if you spend a whole lifetime practicing for it.”
That image of a single individual balanced on a narrow, taught wire between two concrete, glass monolithic symbols of western power and control will always remain a profound and transformative image in many minds.
Life can certainly be like trying to walk a tightrope. And it can take a lifetime to master the balancing act. The reality of life’s shaky ground, disagreements among friends, church struggles in the modern world, losses and gains in all the realms of our experiences — the question may not be “Why is it so?” but “How do we practice a lifetime to master it?”
This Sunday, February 7, we will look at the balancing act that is life — in the church (in the United Methodist Church), in our day-to-day experiences, and how we walk that tightrope.
Come join us for some real inspiration and fun!
