Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

How beautiful upon the mountains are the feet of the messenger who announces peace, who brings good news, who announces salvation, who says to Zion, “your God reigns.” (Isaiah 52: 7)

Every time I am at Mar Lu Ridge, I am reminded what a beautiful and wonderful gift this ministry is to our Synod, and how proud I am that Prince of Peace has made Confirmation Camp and the camp experience an important part of the catechism of our young people.

This week, seven our young people join 60+ other confirmands from both the DE-MD and Metro DC Synods to share in the outdoor experiences that God will make possible.

As we focus on this week’s theme,“Jesus Makes a Difference”, we look at such biblical stories like the Prodigal Son and Zacchaeus to explore how God’s amazing grace comes into our lives and to know that no one is beyond the grace and love of God.

Living out Christian community in the beauty of that mountaintop setting, we listen for God’s voice and look for signs of God’s peace around us.

Please continue to pray for all the young people who are at Mar Lu Ridge this week, and for all the counselors and staff that make Mar Lu Ridge the special and unique witness to God that it is.
