The Living Lutheran site has just posted my latest blog post, "Make Church More Like Camp." Go here to read it.
Here are some quotes to whet your appetite:
"As July turns to August, church camps across the nation are closing the books on another summer. I imagine equipment being cleaned and stored for the winter. I think of arts-and-crafts directors cataloging materials. I imagine the loneliness of the chapels and the more rustic worship sites as they sit and wait for the coming year."
"Many of us don't talk about making our weekly church experiences more like those that capture the hearts of children. Why are we so resistant to that? Why do we assume that camp is special and a place apart and that we cannot duplicate any of that?"
