It's a pilgrimage for many, but for me it always starts out as an obligation to be fulfilled.
I shouldn't complain - I have the best job on the site, for I could not arrange my schedule better if I tried. But this is an event with thousands of Christians packed into a small former world war two airfield - that I often find it hard to relate to.
The speakers this year range from people I don't know at all, to the presidents of 3ABN and the North American Division - looking at the program I'm calling it the Institution Year - and as regular readers t my site know, it seems institutions are naturally inclined to stifle innovation to survive. And I very much believe that the gospel needs new innovations from new people every day to thrive.
But if this year is anything like last year (and the 9 years before that) I will find blessings throughout the week in some of the unlikeliest places. Besides, Bill Liversidge is back again this year - and in my book he's a rock star!
I'll be posting Camp meeting highlights through out the week - all with a bit of simple pastor commentary - so check back for updates and links to new things I find.
