Sabbath is difficult for all of us to squeeze into our over-scheduled, always-connected, busy lives. For teenagers, learning the value of taking time to allow yourself to rest is imperative. Their minds and bodies are still developing which means adequate rest will allow them to develop properly. It also means that we can work this idea of taking time to rest into their hardwiring with a prayer that society doesn’t overcome that in the coming years.
Our teenagers are learning how Sabbath was built into the fabric of creation and meant as a gift to us from the divine. As we have explored passages from the Hebrew Bible on creation and the accounts of the Ten Commandments, we have seen the beauty in a God who desires that we refresh our souls in order to deepen our relationships.
As we move forward we will explore the Sabbath in context of community and justice.
But how are your teens doing? I’m sure that is what you are longing to hear. As expected, they are doing fabulous. Old friends, new friends, and unexpected surprises (like Kate Rhudy and Maggie Corbett playing for us) have been staples of our week. The joy on their faces is only matched by the laughter filling every space on the mountain. I’ve heard from several church leaders that the camp seems a bit more peacefully subdued this year, especially among the testosterone fueled campers.
Enjoy a few snapshots for now and join us August 9th to hear more of the details on our week.
We the Care of Creation Sunday Group of Pullen Memorial Baptist Church stand in solidarity with all 195 nations that signed the Paris Climate Accord. Our faith traditions teach that care for Creation is our moral duty, and the stakes for our planet — and ourselves — have never been higher. By embracing restorative and regenerative actions, we can continue mitigating the impacts of climate disruption while also creating a more equitable and just world. We are compelled to call out President Trump for his lack of leadership in making his decision to leave the Paris Climate Agreement. This immoral, short-sighted decision endangers all citizens on Earth and future generations. That said, we must all continue to find and implement solutions to address climate change by our actions in our communities, homes, and institutions.
