"As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love." John 15:9
Wow. Christ loves, as God the Father loves. I am called to love, as Christ loves me. I am to continue in His love. What does this mean? How do I continue in love?
I believe by making a choice, every morning, to accept His love. To be the one who shows His love to someone each day. I continue in love through showing up to work. Through caring for Jinx, Two-Step, and Blitz, diligently. I continue in love by helping my neighbor. When I pray for a student, or when I challenge them in their faith, I continue in love. By choosing to let love be my motivation. I choose to continue serving in love.
From our biggest winter event, Hot Doggin, to weekly hosting of retreats, Stonewater is bustling with activity! In mid-January, we hosted the annual YD Hot Doggin retreat for our YD community groups. Eighty students spent four days experiencing winter, outdoors, and Christ's love.
On most weekends, we host church, family, and ministry groups for their winter retreats. Each weekend can be filled with anything from cross-country skiiing, to raftboggening, to simply sharing the heart of Christ in this place.
Life lived in love happens everyday.
