Camp Meeting in the 21st Century

This week my family and I are at our Conference’s Family Camp.  It is a time for families to have age-appropriate lessons on the holy life–what it is, how to access it, and what that means for your life.  It is also a time of fun and fellowship for all involved.

The theme of the camp this year is Holiness: Coming Home Again. This got me thinking about how the call to the holy life really is a homecoming of sorts.  When we allow God’s grace to continue to transform us more and more completely into the likeness of Christ, we dive deeper and deeper into the holy life.

This is the goal of life, conformity to Christ, living a holy life, and fellowship with God.  It is made real in this life as we love God with all that we are and all that we have, and love others because they are made in the image of the God we love.

As we experience holiness, we come closer and closer to our true home–life with God.

I’m sure I’ll have more thoughts as the week goes on.
