In the Glory Days

Each week, we see many of YOU, former T Bar M Campers and Coaches, bringing your Campers (and we are banking on future Coaches) through the Gates. Sure, we reminisce about the "good ol' days" ... pointing out what cabin we were in, talking about the "walk to the dock" before there were stairs, laughing over pranks, and remembering how God changed us all. This week, watching you all catch up with one another, invest in bringing your kids to a place that shows them Jesus, and tearing up over who God is in your life, reminded us that YOU are indeed not just living in the "good ol' days" ... but living in the Glory Days.

The quick reconnect and meaningful conversations we are a part of is where we see it the most. It's how we see God shining (and we imagine He is smiling too!). As we gather all together and welcome the Alumni, their kids, and their spouses, we tend to kid that this "reunion" will be easier than a High School reunion: We are way more fun! One "new to Camp" husband shared his first (and very quick) impression, "y'all go deep on conversations fast. No shallow talk, straight to the heart and care ... I love that! I have never experienced that anywhere."

I suppose it might be us falling back into our old roles. Talk fast, while you wrangle 12 campers to the Chuckwagon. Sincerely ask how you are doing, as you harness 20 teenage boys. In the "good ol' days of summer". We learned to care fast and mean it. It was one of the biggest lifelines the Lord gave us at Camp ... one another.

It's a T Bar M core value lived out: God's Truth, practiced in relationships and conduct. (1 Timothy 3:16)

It's this year's theme lived out: Glory Days, now and forever. What we do gives God the Glory. (Psalm 115:1)

It's not just living out the "good ol' days" ... it's living out the Glory Days. And y'all do it well!

Take another practice from the past ... huddle up with your people.
How do you see your lives give God the Glory through your relationships and conduct?

Running the Race

There is a race run at Camp Travis each Wednesday of the Summer. In looking through the epic photos, we can't help but see God's Word coming alive. And if we listen closely enough, we see how it reminds us how to run the race we are in daily (just with less mud ... hopefully). […]
