Camp Marshall 2009

No, I've not dropped off the earth; it merely feels like an alternate reality. I'm at our diocesan campground this week, serving as chaplain for several dozen kids, counselors and staff. The seasonal theme is "Equipping the Saints," which this week means we are spending some time in what Jesus knew as scripture-- the Old Testament.

As the collect states, we are trying to "read, mark, learn and inwardly digest" the stories of our faith.One of the ways we do that, of course, is in worship. This is a shot of folks gathering for morning chapel.




But there is more than one way to encourage. This was dessert Monday night.





In addition to the Christian Ed program going on, we've had a lot of activities. Once the weather allowed, we've been hiking, swimming, kayaking, and running all over everywhere.




Even some arts and crafts get done outdoors. Today some of the kids had a lesson in watercolor painting.






If you look carefully, you can see the young artist above is doing a marvelous job capturing her chosen subject:





Long days, and cool nights, and a wonderful part of God's creation in which to work. Hard for a gig to get better than this.
