High School Summer Camp
“Who is my neighbor?” This was the question that the lawyer asked to Jesus in Luke 10. The lawyer was living in a world divided by racial separation, religious hypocrites, and high political tensions. Jesus used a parable to define the answer: he tells the story of the good Samaritan, in which Jesus smashes all the lines that separate people in order to establish that the term “neighbor” is an all-inclusive statement.
This is the heart of Summer Camp 2017: “Love Thy Neighbor”. Jesus was very specific in breaking down walls that separated people in order for His love to reach them. Our hope for Summer Camp is that the walls within our hearts would be broken, that we connect with our neighbors, and that the love of God flows from us to them.
