Today is the day that we celebrate Camp Mount Luther's birthday. On June 30, 1963, the dedication of the camp occurred. Last year, we had a big celebration on this date to commemorate our 50th birthday.
Our Bible reading for today reminds us of how different generations interact. Lately, it seems, I've been thinking more about how things change from generation to generation. Additionally, I ask myself the question, "What does a certain generation teach or hand down to the next?" In this passage, we hear of those who are being disparaging to another generation.
But then we are reminded that God does not change from one generation to the next. I recently remarked to a friend that despite all the changes and decline we see in the church today, I am hopeful. As our summer staff studied this year's curriculum, we had theologically rich discussions. The younger generation cares about their faith and follows the same God my generation does. And it's the same God my parents worship, and their parents before then, and.... well, you get the idea.
Jesus reminds us to come to Him when our burdens are heavy and He will give us rest. It's something God's been doing for many generations. --Chad Hershberger, Camp Mount Luther Director
