Prayer: Lord, you are with us as we pass through the waters of life. Gather us at Camp, at church and in our communities and quench our thirst to know you better through your word. Amen
Reading: Isaiah 43: 1-9 (Click to read text)
Stop and GROW: After reading the text, discuss/ponder the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America's Book of Faith questions, which are part of Camp Mount Luther's GROW Time with campers.
QUESTION 1: What scares, confuses, challenges, or doesn’t make sense to me in this text?
QUESTION 2: What delights me in this text or is my favorite part of the story?
QUESTION 3: What stories or memories does this text stir in me?
QUESTION 4: What is God up to in this text?
Reflection: Reading this passage from Isaiah took me right back to Camp Mount Luther - Summer 2017. The theme that year: The Water of Life; the Bible verse for the week: When you pass through the waters, I will be with you. (Isaiah 43: 2) So good to read these verses again today and remember Family Camp there and Vacation Bible Camp at my church.
Camp Mount Luther just held a Summer Brochure Launch event inviting all to come and hear about camps coming up in 2019. What will the theme be? What will the Bible verse be? I was not able to be at the launch party so I do not know. But I do know this: Those who go to camp this summer will remember for years!
