A new Facebook post, capturing the moment on Snapchat, Tweeting about that awesome burger you ate. God created humans with the ability to create and the want to strive for an improved life but what if some of our inventions separate us more from those around us and the things god created than they do drawing us closer.

Psalm 104 verse 24-25 says “[24] How many are your works, LORD! In wisdom you made them all; the earth is full of your creatures. [25] There is the sea, vast and spacious, teeming with creatures beyond number— living things both large and small.” As one goes through the normal routines of life as we know it, it can be incredibly easy to fall into the trap of living life through a device rather than living life immersed in Gods creations. Psalm 104 can give us the little reminder we may be needing to put down something humans created and enjoy the creations god gave us and praise him for the wisdom he had to create all creatures. One can get so caught up in seeing what others are doing or seeing what will give them instant gratification that they need to step back and immerse themselves in a community and enjoy all that god has given us.

              Tall Timber is a place in which those daily distractions and worries are put behind and we are filled with a sense of belonging within a powerful community surrounded by everything god has created, from the rocks on which we climb to the wildlife we observe as a creation of God. One of the most important parts about camp is the community formed weather that be the connection between campers and staff or campers to campers or even just staff to staff, we feel a real sense of belonging when we are with one another rather than seeing one another on a device or social media platform. When we are immersed in community our faith can build upon one another’s and grow us even closer to God. 1st John chapter 1 verse 7 clearly informs us that when in community we are brought closer to God “[7] But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.”

              Tall Timber provides people with the ability to disconnect and engage with a community that can help one another grow in faith while being present in the amazing creations of God.
