I’m back from camp. Wahoo! It feels kind of weird to write this the week before camp starts and talk about how great camp was before it really happens, bu that is the reality with which I am given. Deadlines are deadlines!
I could write about all the fun, the meaningful conversations, and the singing we did. Penning a line about the cool weather might be tempting as well as bragging about a whole week without electronics. Maybe I could write about all of the laughter and joy–I mean this IS the Wacky Welcome, right?
No, I will skip all those and just say, “Thanks” to everyone who made the week possible: the kids, the parents and grandparents and siblings who provided transportation, those who gave money, other congregations, the adult volunteers(money of whom took vacation time to be there) and to this congregation itself for allowing me to go.
Most clergy who identify key moments in their lives which lead them to ministry point to an experience at camp. I pray the week of camp will inspire a new generation.
