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…
