Making Friends

It’s Tuna Tuesday in our Excited for Camp Campaign.

I’m excited for camp because it’s when camp comes alive.  It’s when people are singing all the time. People are [video_lightbox_youtube video_id=”N3bzb-fjVG4&rel=0″ width=”640″ height=”480″ anchor=”getting messy”] all the time (then cleaning up).  It’s when I get to run out of the office to play group games or four square or pretend to be really angry about something which sets the stage for a Mission Impossible skit for the coming night.  It’s a time when my faith in Jesus is stretched, challenged and encouraged.  It’s a time when I make new friends.

That brings me to my next point – making friends.  In her blog post from 2011, Pepper talked about the relationship building that happens here at camp.  And it’s one of my favorite things!  Ever since college, I learned the value and joy of community.   And at Bethany Birches, we talk a lot about building community.  Particularly a community of love.  The kind that lets us see God smiling at us.  God is often near, it’s just that we often have a hard time seeing him.  And somehow, at camp, as we build a community of love together, we can see God more often.

I hope you’ll join us this summer to make some new friends and hopefully, see God.  He’s often not far…
