Spin-Tacular Basketball

At our church this evening, we had Guinness World Record Holder Bruce Crevier. He is a ball handler who also shares the Gospel. He challenged the audience to not focus on getting your name in anybook here on earth but in making sure your name is written in the Lambs Book of Life. We had a good crowd and were thrilled to see many of the visitors place their faith in Jesus Christ.
Of course, all the kids, including my three, loved the show! Gary was named as a volunteer and had the challenge of throwing the basketball over his head and catching it by putting his hands between his legs. Gary got close :) Nobody actually did it in the 30 second time limit; of course, Bruce then proceeded to do it with 2 basketballs. He holds the world record for spinning 21 basketballs at the same time; he did 12 for us.

Looks like it was a lot of fun. Those type of services/events tend to stick with you as you get older, so your kids will probably remember it very well.

(I still remember that guy who brought all the "TV is evil" slideshows at Berean. I'm glad your church has much more POSITIVE evangelism!)
