Philippe Petit pushes it to the limit as a high wire walker. One of his greatest feats was in 1974 when he crossed from one of the World Trade Centres to the other. Stepping out onto a thin wire is no easy feat. He’s no doubt a man of faith. So what kind of faith does it take to high wire walk? And is it the same faith that we talk about in Christianity?

Below you will two things that centre around the questions above. First a sermon. Second a clip from Philippe Petit at the TED Talks where he describes his high wire experience. If you want you can watch the clip before the sermon or at the point in the sermon where it’s referenced.
