Cairn Connects – Week Five of Great Activities for Campers (and wanna-be campers) at Home

Thank you Robynne (Mapes) Howard for another great week of camp activities for kids to connect with this week as we continue to social distance at home. Check out the Camp Cairn website (http://ilovecamp.org/cairn-connects.cfm) for all the details that tell you how to get online with the camp staff for your Cairn Connects activities of choice.

Enjoy your week everyone, and sing ‘Our God is an Awesome God’ one day this week for me.

As an aside, when JP (Cheshire) and I (Rumples) walked the Camino de Santiago a few years ago, we would sing every camp song we ever knew at the top of our lungs late in the day to keep us going to the end of our day’s journey. When we made it to our evening’s lodging we’d always get asked, “Were you guys singing out there?” Yup – we were, and loved every minute of it. Thanks to Glen Mhor and Iona for keeping us company on our journey.

I’ve been collecting a number of links to great websites/blogs/articles over the past couple of weeks that I think represent some of the best we can be doing, following or gaining insight from as we practice social distancing and stay home in our efforts to flatten the curve. I had hoped I could weave them into an article along the way, but for one reason or another, they never quite fit the article themes I was working on. I don’t want them to be lost in the shuffle, so I’m posting them all here in the hope that one or two might also resonant with you.

Nassagaweya PC Chapodcast – Thursday

Oops, I posted this Chapodcast on Tuesday by mistake, and it really should have been posted this Thursday. I’ve corrected the Tuesday post, and Thursday’s video is now in its rightful place in the weekly line-up. If you viewed this Chapodcast earlier this week, you will need to head back to Tuesday’s post to see a new chapel today. If not, enjoy today’s Chapodcast. I’m sorry for the mix-up. As with everyone, I’m learning more about technology these days than I ever thought I’d need to.
