What is the last day of camp like? We avoid the camp high and go for a hopeful commission.
When you are uncertain, to what or to whom do you turn? This week, students will engage closely with Plato’s Meno and 1 John in a unique way – different from an academic or book club context – that will challenge them to listen generously, question thoughtfully and engage lovingly. Both texts are revealing in the ways they treat uncertainty, questions of doubt and next steps.
What does our theme mean? Living Among Shadows seems a cryptic phrase, not at all what would describes a Christian conference for youth. But, at Wheatstone, we believe the theme is emblematic of the doubt and questions present in today’s world. At Wheatstone youth will grapple with their doubts and questions in creative, constructive and illuminating ways. . . illuminating enough perhaps for the shadows.
