Subject: my thoughts on a Kingdom kids' camp

Recently Tom Nisbett and I conducted the first-ever Kingdom Come Adventure at Sacramento. It is a modernized version of the Christian Ashram. Response was tremendous, and we thought we might hold something similar, that relates to teenagers. At the KCA we discussed Kingdom values and how they conflict with worldly values. We all have access to worldly urging and Kingdom guidance. To everything that happens to us we can either react in a worldly way, or respond in a Kingdom way. Which voice we listen to determines our happiness, or lack of it. Through choices we make and habits we develop, we all form into either worldly people or Kingdom people. Discerning kids need to be taught to recognize the higher Kingdom voice over the TV, etc. They need to be taught how every choice they make has two sets of consequences: what happens now and what happens later. If one is pleasant, the other will probably be unpleasant.

When Jesus stood before Jairus' dead daughter's bed, the crowd said, "Why bother the Master? She's dead." But Jesus "overheard" (parakousas) the hopeless voices, and listened to the Higher Voice. (Mark 5:36) The lower voice said, "She's dead." But the Higher Voice said, "But she can live again." This is a dangerous world, and kids are plagued with problems because they don't get adequate input on issues such as this, in my opinion.

Several pastors have told me New Mexico camping is hurting, and I thought some of us might help. Sacramento is one of my favorite places in the world. I think we could have a wonderful new camp that would help kids, and boost the camping program there, too.
