This is an additional reflection on this Sunday's Psalm.
Reading: Psalm 133 (Click to read text)
Reflection: Early in staff training each year, Chad and I introduce the summer staff to the peace table. It’s just a nicely covered card table that invites staff to make peace with each other. There is a process that we teach and demonstrate. We aren’t sure how often the table gets used throughout the summer, but we do know that 20 people working as closely together as we do find themselves at odds with each other from time to time. Just as we do in our living together in everyday life. The ministry that we do at Camp Mount Luther is a lot better when the staff is at-one with each other. Our life together day in and day out is also an obvious blessing when we are at peace with each other. A blessing to each other and to those around us. Probably you don’t have a peace table available. But, you surely have the opportunity to live in unity with those around you. It takes a little work and some courage to make peace with each other. But, it surely makes life a blessing.
How very good and pleasant it is
when kindred live together in unity.
--Jim Bricker, Chaplain to Camp Mount Luther’s Summer Staff.
