Attention Please

Remember when you were a kid at school and the teacher was trying to get everyone in the class to settle down for a special announcement.  Some kids were passing notes, others trying to cram in the last bit of homework that they hadn’t done the night before, some staring out the window and others were fidgeting just passing time until recess.  Things haven’t changed much as we have grown older.  The Lord seeks to get our attention before we start the day, but we are busy fidgeting with a coffee pot, cell phone, computer or television.  There is wisdom in the words from The MESSAGE, Matthew 6:34,  “Give your entire attention to what God is doing right now, and don’t get worked up about what may or may not happen tomorrow.  God will help you deal with whatever hard things come up when the time comes.”

Forging Friendships

FDSC 1531 e1404510974151 412x620 Forging Friendshipsriendships can be forged anywhere…at work, at school and yes, even in stumps.  Every summer we watch young campers head for the stumps to share their dreams, secrets and burdens with their buddies.   In the Message Bible in Proverbs 18:18-24, “Friends come and friends go, but a true friend sticks by you like family.”  One of the greatest gifts camp offers to campers is friendship… friendship with God and friendship with fellow campers.  Next time you are at Gilead head for the stumps and  bask in the gift of friendship.

Easy Access


This last Thursday our friends at the Graton Fire Department came to Mt. Gilead to gain some training experience while simultaneously helping us by draining  our swimming pool so we could replace it with fresh water and inspect  the floor for needed repairs.  Normally those 65,000 gallons of water provide tons of fun for our campers and guests, but at other times the water proves to be a hindrance in our ability to make repairs.
