Sundays at DeSoto are days to savor.
The pace around Camp is slower on Sundays. We are more settled in, and that gives us all a chance to relish what the day brings us - rest and rejuvenation, delicious meals, intentional time with our cabin and friends, a great big picnic, peaceful worship, and voices joined in beautiful harmonies.
Sundays at Camp are also designed to help us reflect on the week we’ve shared and look forward to all that is coming. A day to savor all that is good about Camp. This savoring is something you can just feel around Camp. Girls love Sundays, and I think it is partly because we take time to celebrate the good gifts God has given us and thank him for the many ways he’s showing us his love.
One of my favorite parts of our worship together are our morning prayers. A staff member prays these prayers for the whole community, and the rest of us join in on the refrain.
I’d like to share some of those morning prayers - they capture at least a taste of all that we are savoring as we worship God.
