Thank you for submitting your questions on Sunday, September 5th. We had a number of questions come in on racism and mental health issues. Below are the questions that were texted in but we didn't have enough time to answer them in service.
It’s one of my favorite things every year since moving to Boise. Man Camp. Or in other words…men’s retreat. I have been going now for about 6 years. I remember the first year. I had just moved to Boise and didn’t really know anyone. There was group of about 30 of us camping out next to Warm Lake outside of Cascade, Idaho. I was definitely the youngest guy there. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, but I wondered where all the “younger men” were. It's no secret that there is an exodus of Millennials in our churches today. And what I’ve observed is it's a lot of younger men. They're nowhere to be found. Why is that?
Camp season is here and we are kicking things off this Thursday with Kid’s Camp! Whether your student is in 3rd, 8th or 12th grade, great conversations after camp can solidify the meaningful truths they experienced at our retreats. We want to help you have those conversations with your student when they return home from camp.
It’s not secret that the refugee crisis is a huge topic in our world. And I’m not here to try to swing anyone one way or another. But its hard to deny the fact that God is moving people toward the gospel around the world, and I’ve come to believe that this is at least part of the purpose He has to be for my travels around the Middle East and Europe.
