“As they stepped off the map into uncharted territory, Meriwether Lewis discovered that what was in front of him was nothing like what was behind him, and that what had brought him to this point in the journey would take him no farther. Lewis faced a daunting decision: What would he do now? Lewis and Clark and their Corps of Discovery were looking for a water route, but now had run out of water. How do you canoe over mountains?” Canoeing the Mountains Tod Bolsinger
This past year has been uncharted territory. What is in front of us is nothing like what was behind us, yet the mission at Camp Sentinel continues strong.
We opened this past summer for day, family, adult camp and for personal and family retreats. This fall we hosted Student Care – a place of remote learning for families in need of care for their children while parents headed off to work and we also offered weekly meals to the community in love.
This is how we stay missional by applying God's unchanging Truth in love to a changing world.
What is ahead?
I take comfort in these verses from Lamentations 3:22-23:
"The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.” Lamentations 3:22-23
Camp provides a place where we can take unhurried moments to focus on the steadfast love of our unchanging God. At camp, we are reminded of how immovable God is through time in the quiet, gazing at the bright stars at night. Our faith deepens as we are reminded that the steadfast love of the LORD never ceases…great is Thy faithfulness.
In 2021 we will explore…
- what it means to be unhurried as we enjoy patient time in nature
- how to be undistracted by maintaining focus on what’s important
- discovering how our faith helps to maintain our hope in the Lord
- and become balanced through listening to God through His Word.
Thank you for your prayers, your support, for standing with us in ministry as we stay the course and look forward to what is ahead.
See you on the mountaintop!
