Kevin Camp In Support of Community Expectations, 2010 YAF Gathering: Wichita, Kansas

I would like to respond to the controversy over the Expectations for Community guidelines in place for the upcoming 2010 Young Adult Friends Gathering in Wichita, Kansas. Before I begin, let me say that had I not experienced negative and destructive behavior firsthand at similar gatherings, I would be somewhat reluctant to support one or two of these guidelines myself. However, speaking from experience, I believe these sorts of rules are necessary to maintain the stability and general health of… Continue

Guidance

We almost lost a good friend the other day.


There was me, and another three people feeling this unease... "We haven't seen her around today; I wonder is she all right?"


We listened to 'reason' first of all! We stopped to think. We knew it had been cold out, not too surprising for someone feeling poorly to hole up in their place and keep to themselves awhile...


We listened to each other. "Probably she's gone to sleep by…

Notes on Belief

I am a religions junkie. Probably because I don’t have one of my own, I kinda find the same pieces floating everywhere, in different language, but the symbols are all the same…



My early background, until 14 really is Vedanta. And it shapes me, no doubt. But I also know a fair bit about Judaism and more about Christian Scriptures than even some clergy have been able to appropriate. I have gone into many churches, talked to many, many kinds of…

seek and Ye shall Find

In Matthew 7:7 Jesus tells us to ask and it shall be given to us, seek and ye shall find, knock and it shall be opened unto you. I want to address this verse and especially the word "seek". It has been my observation that most people don't seek the truth. They might ask someone they know what is the truth but they don't ask God. And when they do, they don't seek the truth. It is my position that like the Israelites in Exodus we are willing to send Moses… Continue

The Empty Tomb

A wag once said that it's always darkest just before the lights go out. We may chuckle at this cynical modification of a common aphorism, but I'd suggest that in some ways it's truer to life than the original. I think we've all experienced--I know I have--that moment when belief falters, hope dies, and we cry out from our cross: my God, my God, why have you forgotten me? And sometimes--again, I speak from my own experience--the darkness seems not to yield. The lights don't come back… Continue

I love God because he listened to me (Ps 116)



Mark 4 : Jesus Calms the Storm

35That day when evening came, he said to his disciples, "Let us go over to the other side." 36Leaving the crowd behind, they took him along, just as he was, in the boat. There were also other boats with him. 37A furious squall came up, and the waves broke over the boat, so that it was nearly swamped. 38Jesus was in the stern, sleeping on a cushion. The disciples woke him and said to him, "Teacher, don't you care if we drown?"

39He got up, rebuked… Continue
