Reflection: Look at the photos of the senior high girls at Camp Mount Luther this summer. They were all in braids. It was their own special thing. Along with living together in a cabin, eating meals in the dining hall, having all the fun of camp, devotions, and days on end together, they all did their hair in braids. Like Psalm 133 speaks of, kindred unity on so many levels even down to hair care.
How very good and pleasant it is when kindred live together in unity.
Psalm 133: 1
The week at camp comes to an end and the goodbyes are often sad. Yet, the Lord ordains his blessing, life forevermore. (v. 3) We are God's family. Let's hope to see each other at camp again next year! --Ruth Gates
