SR: Family Camp and Proper 9, 2013

Link: Souvenirs

Summary of what I was saying and why:
We read Jacob’s ladder (Genesis 28:10-22) and the Tranfiguration (Mark 9:2-8). Saturday is the last day of Camp, our theme is Be Imitators of God. I often hear how Camp is the place people best experience God (good) or how Camp is really their only Church (eeeeh). I wanted to bring together the joy Camp, the challenge to be Imitators of God, and the joy what they have experienced here. And then remind and challenge people to be imitators of both in the rest of their lives.

Theology: Incarnation
Jesus Count: low
Good News: We carry our best experiences forward with us.

What did I change on my feet?
Not a lot. Things went about as I expected, although with less interaction than I was hoping for. That is the risk of interactive preaching.

What didn’t work/what did I miss?
In my head I had a line or two about how we are the souvenirs God sends out into the world. Which would have tied things up a bit. Just didn’t get there mentally.

What did work?
I really liked the concept. I wish my execution had been a little better.

Other sermons I liked:

Priest Young on the importance of remaining.

Priest Arnold tells people that “the kingdom needs to be proclaimed out there, where we spend our days.”

Priest Richardson uses one of my favorite quotes from St Teresa of Avila.

Dean Richards preaches on mantles and their weight.

(Here’s the list of people I usually listen to. Am I missing someone?)
