Getaway 2013: Day 2

Today began early, with breakfast at 8:00. Even the tantalizing smell of bacon, sausage, and eggs was barely enough to tempt some students out of their comfortable beds. After a short time of waking up, they had their first quiet time. Today’s quiet time discussed how hope ties into the matter of courage, using excerpts from John Piper’s book, Risk Is Right.

During worship, which followed quiet time, Pastor Jeff talked more about the LORD as a Warrior, this time using scripture from the New Testament to illustrate his points. Worship was followed by recreation for the high school students and small group time for the middle school students. Small group discussed what being a true disciple of Christ looks like using Mark 8:34-38. We learned that true disciples unashamedly follow their LORD and are willing to forsake their own lives to do it.

The first day of recreation brought on a new twist than previous Getaways. Students and their team leaders built relationships as they played various team-building games, competing against the clock rather than each other. One game in particular taught the team leaders exactly how much they could trust their group as they were blind-folded and forced to rely on listening to the voice of their team to navigate a maze of obstacles.
