As you know, this is a difficult time in Canada and the world. How many times have you heard the term “unprecented“? It’s a new normal for sure. Hard decisions must be made in the face of the greatest challenge that our world has faced in our lifetimes in dealing with the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The path forward is full of unknowns. The path forward is not even a trail that we can see. Robert Frost’s poem says:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
We are now traveling on the third road, the one that does not exist and there is no map to help us navigate. It is times like this that will define us as a board, staff, and camp community. How we respond to this challenge will be remembered. YoYoJoe
These are uncharted waters and we are all sailing without a map. Now is not the time for an authoritative pronouncement from the keyboard warrior class. Now is not the time to judge and condemn our neighbours. Now is the time for study, reflection, dialogue, decision and mercy. Paul Carter
In times like these we need to draw back close to God and rely on him. We ask that you would pray with us that we would have wisdom in our decision making as we look ahead to the summer. If we can, we do plan to run camp this summer. We’re not yet sure what restrictions may be placed on us. It looks like Ontario is beginning to get to the top of the peak, so pray too that we would be able to be open this summer. Pray for our MBC leadership team and the MBC board as some hard decisions need to be made.
Please with and for us and let us know if we can pray for you.
