The Gospel Coalition

The church was all abuzz yesterday because this week is. . . . drumroll. . . .family camp! That's right, this is the week where we let our children reenact Lord of the Flies and parents voluntarily decide to take a vacation that is seventeen times harder than real life. For the first time in eight years providence has frowned upon our family so that we are in town during the church's camping week. So the DeYoungs have purchased an eight person tent (it has two rooms!) and we'll be enjoying nature (and bathrooms) with a large portion of our congregation. Were it not for the fellowship (which really will be nice) the prospect of living outside with five children--on purpose--would be even more puzzling. I just hope my books don't get too sandy.

We just got back from camping with 60+ members of our congregation this weekend. We do it every year, AND have a Family Camp at our local association campgrounds. It's not that hard, and if you just let the kids play they will be fine!

Headed to camp with the youth group today. Allegedly there is AC, a lake, a pool, basketball, a ropes course, three square meals, music, preaching, snacks, stuff to buy, and ping pong. If that's not roughing it I don't know what is.

A stay at the Quality Inn when the AC doesn't work is roughing it today.
