Navigating the greatest height of all requires spiritual harness

One of my least favorite youth activities is the ropes course. If you're not familiar with this team-building tool, they're networks of obstacles, such as walls, planks, bridges, ladders and zip lines, that participants have to work together to climb over and under. While I know the principle of the activity is that solving physical problems with teamwork should allow the participants to apply the lessons learned to social problems, I am terribly afraid of heights and as soon as I don a harness and a helmet my stomach gets queasy, my hands get sweaty and I envision the kiddos falling.
