This year’s theme is known, which is taken from John 1:18: “No one has ever seen God; the only God, who is at the Father’s side, he has made him known”. This summer is all about getting to know God through knowing Christ. Monday night is listed on the schedule as theme night. We all scrunch into cars, and head over to Pine Drive, a church only a few miles from the Garden City Inn. When we get there the evening starts out with some silliness. The room leaders performed the well-known Y.M.C.A. song and dance, told funny stories, and other assorted things to “hype” everyone up.
After the period of silliness, there came a time of seriousness. Linda Sandager came up front and shared a portion of her testimony. Then Eric Lonergan spoke to us about “Yahweh”, the name of the LORD (this talk should be available online shortly for those who would like to hear it). It was a great message speaking to the profoundness found in God’s name, that he is who he is. If you are taking the time to read this blog, you should think about checking it out.
