You really do feel closer to God when you pause and take time to give thanks outdoors. Last night's worship was held in lake field just at the start of dusk with a gentle breeze blowing. The campfire not only provided some light but also that great wood smoke smell. Prayer, song and the message shared take on a whole new meaning in this type of setting. The tree frogs,cicadas and other insects lifted their voices in praise too. Joanna Dietz; Minister of Music of Sterling UMC and J.D. Daniely; VCU Campus Minister shared song and message. Camp provides many opportunities for learning and affirmation. Last night was a great way to start off our last week of summer camp for 2012. I am really glad the campers attending this week got to experience this time of praise.
