Dr. David L. Chancey's picture

George Barnard Shaw said, “There are two sources of unhappiness in life. One is not getting what you want; the other is getting it.”

America is obsessed with success. We work hard to get what we want. From the early days of our youth, we are encouraged to compete to be number one, whether it’s winning the spelling bee or ranking at the top of our graduating class. Setting our minds on a goal and driving until we reach that goal makes us a success, we think. Success is a destination. Read More»

Church camp

Justin Kollmeyer's picture

One of my favorite events of ministry within the life of our church is our annual trek with kids and youth to summer church camp. We go to our Lutheran camp near Asheville, N.C., in the beautiful Blue Ridge Mountains. It is appropriately named Lutheridge. Many church denominations have camps in that same area.

As you read the Citizen today, I am blessed to be in the middle of our week at Lutheridge right now. Having come here with campers for over 30 years, I can give you an almost exact account of our week, even though I’m writing this before we leave. Read More»
