Sabbath afternoon was beautiful out at the ranch, cool, a little overcast, but a soothing backdrop for worship around the (empty) fire-pit. We talked of the Woman at the Well, from John chapter 4, and the lessons the story provides for our own interactions with others. The Pastor joined the SAILs for songs and devotions, and for a dinner of pizza-tacos. After dark, it was capture the flag, beneath a cloud-covered sky that briefly split to reveal a dazzling moon and stars. The rain didn’t start until after lights out, and was a gentle patter on the tents easing the Pathfinders to sleep.
Overall, rain or no, it was a wonderful weekend of fellowship, fun and time together surrounded by God’s creation.
