The campers were hopping spinning and clapping. The bright colors of their tie-dyed shirts danced with their movements. They were performing the “church clap” for parents and grandparents at the closing ceremony of a week at camp. The energy of the preteens and teenagers was a joy to watch.
My daughter had invited me to join her as she picked up her two daughters from camp. My granddaughters and niece attended the camp. After the restrictions of covid policy over the past 2 years, I was so pleased to see young people having a good time together.
We are designed for community. We need to be together as families and extended family, as the church. We learn from each other. We discover that we have a variety of gifts and interests.
We give praise to God together, acknowledging his love. One of the songs during the closing ceremony brought this Psalm to mind.
How precious is your steadfast love, O God! The children of mankind take refuge in the shadow of your wings.
They feast on the abundance of your house, and you give them drink from the river of your delights. For with you is the fountain of life; in your light do we see light. Psalm 36: 7-9
