Reflection: Today is the day that the 2015 Summer Ministry Team wraps up their first week of staff training. It’s been an intense week, as we’ve gotten to know one another, reunited with old friends, built a new community, and learned more about what it means to serve God in outdoor ministry.
I really like the third verse in Isaiah 2 which reads, “Many peoples shall come and say, “Come, let us go up to the mountain of the Lord to the house of the God of Jacob; that he may teach us his ways and that we may walk in his paths.” It reminds me of all the people who will be coming to our place this summer to have a mountaintop experience. Camp is a place where you can meet God and see Jesus in new and exciting ways. It’s also a place that they will learn more about being a disciple and how they can spread God’s love to everyone.
If you are not signed up to visit camp this summer, consider doing so. Or, encourage a child, grandchild, or young friend to come and see all that we have to offer. It can be a life-changing experience when you meet God on the mountain! --Chad Hershberger, Camp Mount Luther Director
