Psalms of the summer: day 5
The day has finally come!!!!!
On this day high schoolers hear about the sweet redemption of the cross. They hear it and it is good.
Everyone sits through club and then they’re let out for 15 minutes alone under the stars. Every light in camp is (hopefully) turned off and it is them, the sky before them, the quiet around them, and the Lord. It is a beautiful picture to look over camp and see, only by way of moonlight, silhouettes everywhere looking up into the night sky.
There has to be a range of emotions that high schoolers feel on this night. I a lite but remember going out under the stars when I was a sophomore in high school … I sat on the woodchips just behind the pool. The story of the cross is a lot to take in and I think it is such a gift we give to kids to sit outside and begin to process their feelings.
Rock and Redeemer. He is enough.
