Different people have different understandings of what a “worship service” is supposed to be. Some people see it as us communicating to God how much we love God. Some people see it as us seeking to experience God. Either way, Christians set time and space apart to come together as a community, pray, and sing songs to God. We like to call the space set apart for worship “sacred space”. The things of worship show us that “sacred space” is set apart for something: the candles, the altar, the instruments, the vestments. All of these things say, “Something...

Micah 6:8 He has told you, O mortal, what is good; and what does the Lord require of you but to do justice, and to love kindness and to walk humbly with your God? Discovery Camp week 2. It’s almost over and yet it feels like it just started! We’ve had a really amazing two weeks here at Camp DeWolfe.

Jeremiah 17:7 “Blessed are those who trust in the Lord, whose trust is the Lord.”   Discovery Camp week 1 has been a blast so far! We’ve had some pretty great food (Chef Alex strikes again!), great fun in all the activity areas (thanks, Counselors!), and great formation (thanks, Jesus)! We started Sunday night off with our first Christian formation session followed by our opening campfire. The campfire is always a great way to get to know one another and have some fun with s’mores before bedtime. We’re looking forward to our first Eucharist of the session with Fr. Larry Byrne...

Matthew 18:20 “For where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there among them.”   And, just like that, we are now in our last full activity day of our Explorer Camp session! It really has been an awesome week full of fun, excitement, and Jesus! He has certainly been present this week in all of our chapel sessions and activities with the campers. Sunday night was a great first night with our first chapel session, opening campfire and getting to know one another. Monday morning we began our first full day of activities with chapel right on through to water Olympics in the...
