I love mornings at camp! To wake up, hear the groans of kids who’d rather sleep longer, then to hear them get excited and “come alive” as they recount to each other the day before, and the expectation of the day to come. The sun rises over the trees, the grass is still wet. We’ve filled our stomachs with food, filled our water bottles with fresh water, and right now are filling our minds with the focus of the day — Each morning is a refreshing time of new beginning fitting of what lies ahead.
Pray for us and your campers today — that we would know how lovingly made we have been made, and to “put on” that love to be salt and light in the world. To remind the world that God didn’t just make us and then stuff us in a drawer to be forgotten. A fountain in the middle of the main courtyard reminds us of what we should know so well. That “God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.”, and the other side of the fountain reminds us what to do with that love, to “Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit”
