Imagine this: you’re at a theme park with friends, preparing to step aboard your favorite roller coaster. It’s the one that begins with stomach-wrenching drop and races through multiple flips, twists and turns. In those few moments (maybe even seconds!) on the ride, your entire being is surrendered to where the coaster takes you. You give up control and enjoy the freedom of flying through the air, following the coaster’s set path.
It’s a new school year, Kampers! As we settle into our new routines, let us be reminded of God’s provision among the changing seasons. Summer is a time for growth, but fall is a time for harvest—a time for us to reap God’s blessings and dwell in his evergreen faithfulness. In this excitement of a fresh start, have you stopped to consider what God envisions for your life in the year ahead?
With school back in session and sports, homework, and activities in full swing, life is speeding up and the slow pace of summer is falling quickly behind us. While it’s great to be involved and active, we can easily get so busy that we forget to slow down and spend time with the One who loves us most.
The beginning of August marks the end of the summer season, and our Kampers and Staff will soon be returning to school, activities, families and friends in their hometowns all across the country.
