Reflection: Today is the first full day of staff training. Our staff arrived yesterday, ready to learn all about being counselors and program staff for this summer.
They will be guided by what we teach them these next two weeks. And, they will be guided by the Holy Spirit. It’s been my experience that the Spirit blows through camp in new and exciting ways each summer.
This Sunday, we celebrate Pentecost. We remember when the Holy Spirit first came to dwell with us. Just as the Spirit will dwell with the summer staff, the Spirit dwells with you. How will the Spirit blow in new and exciting ways in your life?
