This morning I am heading out for what should be my last ministry road trip of the year. I’ll be going to Camp Eder to speak at their Christmas Tree Festival. This will be my third year speaking and painting at this event and I got a pleasant surprise, I’ll be painting indoors this year. In previous years I painted in a pavilion outdoors and it was, pardon the pun, pretty cool. My first year was one of those unseasonably warm December evenings and I got lulled into a false sense of security. Last year it was frigid, so cold that my paint was doing unusual things, and a little hard to work with, but it was still fun.

This is a great event, that I’d love to do every year. It’s at a beautiful Christian camp near Gettysburg, PA. They cover the camp with lights and displays. Indoors they have Christmas trees decorated by the churches in their region, all trying to “out-creative” each other to win the tree decorating contest.  I always look forward to seeing what they come up with, cause you know how I feel about churches being creative, right? There is also all kinds of delicious food and musical performances each night. It is a lot of fun, but more than that, it’s a creative way to raise funds for a very important ministry. I am so looking forward to this event. If you’re in the area, I’d love to see you. I’ll be there tonight and tomorrow night, ministering around 7:00.
