A Word From Mike…
Acts 1.14 All these were constantly devoting themselves to prayer, together with certain women, including Mary the mother of Jesus, as well as his brothers.
This week I happened to see a Facebook video post from a church camp where I had been a counselor. As I watched the video, I realized that the young woman leading singing was a girl I had been a counselor to, when she was a camper. Then, I saw that the person filming the singing was a young man who I had been a counselor to when he was a camper! How exciting to see kids who have grown up in church camp, who valued the experience and who now give back, so others can share the same experience.
While the Acts verse above is about the church, church camp provides this in a unique setting, and with unique connections. Those connections are found both with people and with God. Camp is a week where day and night, the focused environment is constant devotion to God. It is something we all could benefit from, and probably need to take seriously.
This week we are praying for our CYF campers, as we have prayed for our other campers this summer. My prayer for our church is that we all find those moments of unique devotion that comes from a constant devotion to God.
Thanks for sharing the journey,
Thank you so much to the ladies of CWF for my beautiful knitted quilt! It means so much to me that you gave the time and effort in making the quilt! Thank you for such a treasured gift!
