So, You Were A Gymnast?

I broke my neck as part of a performance gymnastics routine. When I tell my story I usually leave that part out. I'll say, "It was a sports injury", or something like that instead and let others ask for details. That's because, no, I wasn't a gymnast.

Our high school ministry at church performed at schools and churches throughout the school year. The performance was packed with martial arts, dramatic skits, mime, singing, and performance gymnastics. When appropriate we closed the event with an opportunity for the audience to come forward and learn how they could begin a relationship with the Lord.

Everyone tried out for these teams. We practiced Wednesday nights throughout the school year. It took dedication from the students who committed to the teams. Most of us were also active in school sports and other activities too. It was a pretty intense and a great experience.
