A Time for Community …

As I visit with people every day about how they are navigating the times, one thing stands out very clear: We are meant to go through this time together.

Here are “seven points of perspective” for you to consider:

  1. God longs for us to seek Him and draw close. We long to do the same with God, whether we recognize it or not.
  2. The best way to work through challenging times is together, not alone.
  3. A good camp, retreat or conference is a very effective and cost efficient way for people to gather for community, perspective, support, and encouragement.
  4. A good camp, retreat or conference is an awesome way to draw closer to God.
  5. There is no substitute for a good campfire, some friends, and a chance to have a break from the “fullness of life.”
  6. There is nothing like hospitality and kindness when things are under pressure.
  7. If it has been awhile, this may be the right time for you to come and get away at Warm Beach Camp.

I invite you to find time to “sit around the campfire” with family and friends. Let hospitality and kindness flow. Now is a time to live in deep abiding trust in our Lord God.

Others shun leadership for all of the pitfalls and heartache toxic leadership may inflict. For all of the research and experienced opinion out there on the subject, it remains fascinatingly complex and simple all at the same time. Having served in Christian Camps and Conference Centers for over 30 years, I have seen my share of young people ...

An Experience to Remember

The elderly gentlemen carefully took out his debit card as his date stared at him with excitement and joy. “You know, we’ve lived in the area a long time but have never been here before. Where should we go first?” As I took out a map, and explained some of the festival highlights, the woman’s eyes began to widen with anticipation. “Thank you so much. Have a great night and a very Merry Christmas!” I exclaimed as the couple folded ...
