Christian Church in Nebraska
eUpdate: Keeping Disciples Informed
Dear Friends ~~
Kaleo on the River is a beautiful space and place. Have you met Jenny, our new executive director? I hope you get a chance to meet and get to know this dynamo! As you know, probably better than I do, Kamp Kaleo is one of the many Partnerships between the Christian Church in Nebraska and the United Church of Christ – Nebraska Conference. (see note below)
Camping is a partnership, whether you are simply sleeping in your back yard with the kids, or hiking the trails through a forest, or bunking with friends and family. Camping is also a partnership with God’s Creation.
My best experiences camping have been when remained open to the full experience: the smells of the ground, and the smoke, and the flowers; the sights of the old-growth trees and berry-shrubs, and the four-legged creatures, large and small; the sounds of the birds and the crickets and the campfire. My body relaxes into the sights, sounds, and smells; my soul opens up. To experience the fullness of this partnership – this inter-dependence – this intimate relationship with God’s Creation, with myself, and with the people.
Camping is like that. It stirs something inside of us in ways that create lasting memories. Memories that we yearn to experience again. If you are not able to go to Kamp Kaleo this Summer, I hope that you will partner with God and discover ways to experience the fullness that life brings each day.
With Gods Peace
NOTE: It’s my understanding from the Executive Conference Minister of the UCC’s Tri-Ministries (headquartered in Iowa) that they are searching for an Associate Conference Minister to live in, and serve Nebraska.
