Have You Ever Been Lost?

June 2016 archive
I can only ever remember being truly lost one time. This happened while hunting the north woods of Minnesota. The day could not have been more perfect and grouse were flushing right and left as I wandered road after road. Life was grand. I remember thinking out loud, “Wow could this day get any better?”

This experience taught me many life lessons, but one of the most profound, was how easy it is to be lost and not realize it. For those who follow the Lord, our hope has never been de-pendent on our ability to find our way back to Him, but in the sure and certain hope that he has rescued us. But living here in this world, while being not of the world, can provide moments of uncertainty.

I believe we are living in a culture and time that varies between Life is Grand and “Where am I?” While we know that belonging to Jesus means we are never lost, trying to get our bearings in a world as messed as ours, can provide an experience I would call, Culture Shock.

This year Zion will be offering Vacation Bible School for all ages. We are partnering with Lutheran Island Camp to provide a family centered experience. The children and youth will be learning about the 5th Day of Creation, when God spoke into existence all the flying things. The adults will be learning to deal with CULTURE SHOCK. In the adult education time, we will reflect on how we got to where we are today, examine the challenges we face and explore the opportunities that exist for Discipleship in the Home, the Church and the Community.

Please come. Bring your family, your neighbors and your friends. Let’s make this the best VBS ever, in the history of VBS.
