The following is one of my favorite posts from LLYC’s The Beat for a few reasons. The first is that I remember when this situation occurred. And I remember the summer that ensued when the legendary Kristen Camp didn’t get asked to be on staff. In all honestly, I remember that summer fondly. I was interning at our hometown church and I got to spend in exorbitant amount of time with this jewel with whom I have at least a million inside jokes. Another reason her soul-bearing article hits me this particular summer is that I was also unable to visit the Canyon as planned and hoped for. See, once you have kids, you get the privilege of doing camp all over again. But my husband had back surgery and we simply could not go to the week long family camp we’d yearned for all year.
Sometimes the answer is just stinkin’ no!
