A new kind of power.
It started with a group of total strangers. I was on my own in a surreal environment; an introduction; an explanation, some unfamiliar jargon, a safety briefing, signing some visitor forms, a little apprehension then a lesson from a scary guy at the front; then I took the wheel - I was driving an off-shore Honda power boat in the Solent near Southhampton at 35 knots (50 mph)around a choppy and very unfamiliar race course.
The kind staff of The Beacon had bought me a ride of a lifetime for my birthday.
It was brilliant. One of the best rushes ever. Terrifying, exhilarating, thrilling, satisfying - beats any theme park.
Do you think it counts as worship? "Whatever you do..." Col 3:23.
