Camping in Colorado for five days with my best friends from college.

Hey, Emily...

Want to have five of your most favorite people in the whole entire world, all fly in to meet each other from five different states, to spend almost a week together with nothing to do but hike and talk and take pictures and play cards and journal and be together?

Why yes. Yes I do.

Yeah. That's happening. These people will all be there. And we will all be together.
GOING CAMPING. In Colorado (not the dangerous part).

I am SO happy about this.

 (Our two-years-ago (!! how did that happen) selves are saying,
"Wow, I really hope that even when we all live across the country from each other we'll still meet up in the summertime to go camping." Don't worry, graduating seniors, your future grad-schooling selves have your fun factor TOTALLY covered.)

(Oh yeah, and probably most people who read my blog also got my email.
But in case you didn't, immediately after Colorado I'm heading off for something else kind of fun. Crazy month for this girl...)

Human Needs Global Resources Covenant, 2009

As fellow travelers on this journey, we commit to this covenant before God. Lord, in Your mercy, hear these our prayers:

When confronted with scarcity, need, and inadequacy, may we be nourished by the Bread of Life and the Cup of Salvation. Abundance overflows from Your table, sustaining all who come in faith. Father, help us.

When monotony blurs our vision and dulls our senses, may we encounter others as Christ did, through intentional presence in daily life, submitting as clay to be formed into vessels filled with the Spirit. Christ, guide us.

When wounded by the fractured condition of Your people, may we be united by Your Lordship in faith, hope, and love; seeing, as through the facets of a diamond, the beautiful spectrum of Your light reflected onto Your holy Church joined in praise. Spirit, empower us.

When all Creation groans, afflicted by injustice and driven to despair, may the promise of redemption root us in the hope of Your Kingdom: "Behold, I am making all things new!"

Holy Trinity, send us now into the world in peace, and grant us strength and courage to love and serve You with gladness and singleness of heart.
