WPC Warm Up, June 20, 2016
When I was a young child, my aunt and uncle introduced me to camping at age 12 with my cousin age 11. We ventured into the campgrounds of the Sequoia National Park and the Eastern Sierras.
With an old army surplus tent, Coleman white gas stove, ice chest and sleeping bags in tow, we ventured into the "wild." Bears were frequent visitors to accessible trash cans in those days. We watched with fear and amazement.
I learned to fish, eat what I caught, treat the land with respect, be quiet at night and, ah yes, take in the stars and the moon. I learned about myself and God during those times. These special memories are still etched in my soul. Sunday we will reflect on Psalm 8. There is a lot to learn here, about God and ourselves. Come to worship and let's take it all in together. See you Sunday.
