Luther Crest Bible Camp Association

Annual Meeting
February 13th, 2010 at 3 pm
Location: Dining Hall at Luther Crest Camp
Beverages & Treats to be served

It’s our 66th Anniversary this summer at Luther Crest and we are very excited to have been an integral part
of the faith lives of thousands of youth and adults through Bible study and worship focused on the amazing
hope and joy found in living a life in Christ.

Our summer verse is centered on Matthew 16:24, “You must forget yourself, carry your cross and follow
me.” The 2011 summer theme, Follow Me!, will allow campers to dive into a closer look at the life of Christ
and the lessons we learn from Christ’s example that is set out for us to follow. Discipleship is the key focus,
as we examine what it truly means to “carry the cross” and follow Christ as called disciples. Come and
celebrate the summer at Luther Crest in 2011!

Stewardship of the Good News

Blessings to you my fellow messengers of the Gospel! As a society, we tend to focus on different things during different
times of the year. In December, we tend to focus on Charity and giving. In July, patriotism comes to the surface, and even
to the skies. February is another one of those months that our national identity seems to bend to the holiday found in the
month, namely Valentine's day.
Love is all around, it seems that in February it is hard to avoid the topic. For those that find themselves “in love” in the way
that is traditionally discussed in February, will find comfort and happiness in this climate. But, what about those who feel
alone this month? What about those who find themselves without their spouse for the first time this year? What about
those who have yet to find someone who loves them, in this specific way? What about those who don't feel called to this
type of love at all? What is the message for them? Its a problem isn't it.
I would argue that without our faith convictions this is where we find ourselves...at a loss. But we are bound together, not
just by the holidays that we celebrate or the calendars we look at, but by our Faith in Christ. I think the “problem” is not
with love, and not with the holiday, but what we allow to define love for us.
Love is patient; love is kind; love is not envious or
boastful or arrogant 5or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or
resentful; 6it does not rejoice in wrongdoing, but rejoices in the truth. 7It bears
all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. 8Love never ends...
1 Corinthians 13:4-8a
In first Corinthians, Paul begins to define for us, what I think we should be focusing on this month, namely what Love is.
Paul isn't describing some far off foreign theology, or difficult to understand theory. He is describing what Love can, and
should look like. This month, let us all remember, regardless of our situation, that we are called to love each other in a full
sense of that word, and that we can, because God first loved and loves us. Pastor Matthew
