Some combination of these ideas:
Plumb lines, surveying and the challenge of being human( ie getting things wrong)
A bit of Paul
(Rope climbing bit/-use the rope, stay close to the wall, belay partner)
Don’t forget the stories (people)–this is where I would have tied in the Gospel and, given the week, brought the Zimmerman verdict in
I did wind up preaching on Monday’s Daily Eucharistic lessons–for Family Camp. Exodus 1:8-14,22 (Phaoroh’s edict about killing male Hebrew children) and Matthew 10:34-11:1 (Jesus coming to set family member against family member). This is about what I said:
I did not pick the readings. I mention this because they were probably not what you want to hear at the start of a week at Camp with your family.
Jesus is not anti-family. What he is saying is how nothing can be more important than God. And I know you are practicing that. Because you came here, to Camp. A place you have all experienced to be holy ground. To share that experience with your family. Amen.
I was just hat short. Under 2 minutes my staff tells me.
