And so we have wrapped up our Sunday. Sunday at Montreat is by far our slowest day. We can sleep in, play games, hang out, and just generally take it easy. Harrison and Elizabeth took the new people on a tour of the campus. A bunch of them ended the tour with rock hopping and some with ice cream. Dinner was hamburgers and hot dogs – maybe we were all just hungry, but they were some of the best we’ve ever had! Sarah Jane’s burger was a little pink, soshe substituted the hamburger meat for a hot dog, with interesting results!
Sunday night brings our opening worship service. We sang from the new hymnals, which was very cool. The tapestries were stunning, as always. Yes, there was a fog machine going! It fit in with the theme that evening – you’re going to have to trust me on this one.
The preacher was delightful. He said something that really resonated – Montreat is like the ER. People get beaten up all year, and they come to Montreat for healing and rest. Amen, and amen.
Tomorrow the schedule begins in earnest. We could use good vibes for energy and stamina, and for listening ears and hearts.
