I watched a show on Nova today called Extreme Cave Diving. Wes Skiles was the underwater videographer. I really liked what he said towards the end of the show:
"You know I’m not sure how to go on in life if I wasn’t able to go to my church underwater. We go down in these places and we’re cleansed. When we come up from a dive...the pressure, the challenges, the difficulties, the conflicts...they’re gone. We come up from a dive and it is like, you’re reborn."
