Preparing

We had the pleasure of welcoming Dale Cooper back for a second week!  He went through his talk “What I want to be when I grow up: Five character qualities of a mature christian leader” and prepared us for the reality of the present and what will come in the future. Even though he said it will be challenging it will also be rewarding beyound measure.  One of his points was “unimpeachable integrity.”  It is hard for us to be what we are on the outside what we are on the inside.  To be authentic.  But like I said it is rewarding. Our Bible study was Psalm 131:

1 My heart is not proud, O LORD,
    my eyes are not haughty;
    I do not concern myself with great matters
    or things too wonderful for me.
2 But I have stilled and quieted my soul;
    like a weaned child with its mother,
    like a weaned child is my soul within me.
3 O Israel, put your hope in the LORD
    both now and forevermore.

We must prepare ourselves for the Lord, we must have trust in the Lord.  What a great Pslam to read when our trust in the Lord is lacking! What do you hear God saying to you? Listen to him.  We have a God who knows us by name and has our best interest in mind.  We are also preparing for the end of the program.  We have one speaker left tomorrow night and no more after that. Very sad!  As we prepare for the end we look back and remember the great summer we have all had together.  We remember all of the the fun Wednesday activities.  This week was cliff jumping at Radium Hot Springs.  Some photos for your enjoyment:
