The camp pictures you are likely here to see are waiting for you below—just keep scrolling! We’ll be posting pics from Teen Camp daily, sometimes twice a day, and maybe some Adventure Camp and Preteen Camp pictures in there as well. (Click on any picture in a post’s gallery to see it full-sized.) Meanwhile, all the usual content is still here: the Living Youth Podcast, videos, original essays, sermon and article highlights, and other gems we come across. So, come back often, and scroll, wandering traveler, scroll!
We hope to have one more pre-Feast podcast this week, so stay tuned. But with Mr. Robinson back in the office, we were able to snag Mr. Jonathan McNair before he jets off to parts unknown—well, known but exciting!—for the Feast of Tabernacles and do our original plan of having him on the podcast for a discussion about the new year of Living Education. Join us as we talk about what’s new with the on-campus program, as well as Living Ed resources that are available to all of our members of all ages, everywhere.
Before we all sing that first hymn on opening night of this year’s Feast of Tabernacles, it’s helpful to know that a lot of work has gone on behind the scenes to make that night—and the eight days that follow—possible for all of us. Join us today as we chat with Mr. Rod McNair, Assistant Director of Church Administration, and get the scoop on what it takes to make our Feast observances happen—and hopefully get inspired to pitch in yourself!
A pleasantly laid-back podcast this week, as we pause to reflect on favorite memories of Feasts of Tabernacles past and encourage you to plan on making wonderful memories yourself this coming Feast.
In the last week of June 2023, fifteen campers and seven staff hiked in the Olympic National Park in Washington. They hiked the North Coast Trail for four days and three nights, enjoying spectacular views of sea stacks and rockfaces while navigating the challenging beaches. It was a wonderful experience by all accounts, and we hope you enjoy these pictures from their journey!
A common refrain from some who once knew better is that the “door” to preach the Gospel of the Kingdom of God is now closed until Jesus Christ’s return and that we should focus on “preparing the bride.” But is this true? It’s not. In fact, seeking to reach the world with God’s truth is essential to the health of the Body of Christ—including its growth as Christ’s bride. On today’s program, we talk about why. Because that door is very much still open!
We mention two Living Church News articles in this episode. Here are links to both.
I just saw this was online and realized many of you may have never seen it. So, as the Living Ed school year begins anew here in Charlotte this week, we thought it would be good to highlight this video featuring last year’s class—that is, the class of 2023—and illustrating a little about life at LE! This year’s group, the class of 2024, is the largest yet at 22. Looking forward to what the next nine months has in store for them.
In this week’s episode, we conclude our discussion of God’s design of men and masculinity, contrasting it against the fake masculinity on offer from too many hucksters out there.
Also, we mention three other resources on the podcast. Here they are!
