Irrelevant Faith

We've all asked ourselves whether or not what we believe matters. But have we really found an answer? Beyond that, do we even know where to begin looking for an answer? As humans, we only have two places find information: Ourselves, when we choose to trust our senses, emotions, and personal experience; or Others, when we choose to trust a book, a friend, or an authority figure.

Choosing joy at summer camp

Summer camp is a place where you are safe, have fun, feel loved, AND... you get challenged! Sometimes it is the challenge of trying a brand new activity. Sometimes it is the challenge of choosing a joyful heart during a difficult situation. Sometimes it is the challenge of navigativing new relationships or learning to make independent choices without your parents being an arm's reach away.

Rafting Trips Scheduled for Summer Camp!

If you are attending Teen Adventure, or T.I.L.T., some of you get to go WHITEWATER RAFTING!!! I am so excited about this. Instead of rafting being a more expensive "add-on," this overnight one-day trip is INCLUDED as part of the week long summer camp program for the oldest teens.

Are we seeking justice?

Sometimes it feels like there is so much going wrong in the world that there is nothing one person can do about it. Surely one person can't overturn major cultural misunderstandings. Surely one person can't solve worldwide injustice. Surely one person is too small to fix problems so big.
