Another Break – Day 4


It’s prep day…pretty busy, but loving being with my family. Have a great Friday!


“Lord, I Lift Your Name on High” – Monday Musical Musings


???????????????????????????????Today, our 4th and 5th graders from Rocky Mountain Christian Church have joined kids from LifeBridge Christian Church at church camp. I’ve never been to the facility where these kids will be spending the week, but from what I’ve heard, it’s one of the top camp locations in the country! I’m sure the pure beauty of Camp Como will lift their spirits, but I pray that these young students will absorb the biblical principles that our teams have put together for them.


My early church camp experiences were pretty similar. On top of a mountain in the Finger Lakes region of Upstate New York, we would gather at Mountainview Christian Camp to enjoy God’s beauty, learn of His guidelines for our lives, rekindle friendships, and sing. Yes, music was a large part of the church camp experience.


Some were silly songs like “Doodle De Do” or “Georgie,” but when we got down to the real important moments in life music became the catapult from silly to serious. Once we turned our focus to God, we’d sing songs like “His Name is Wonderful,” or “God is So Good,” or “He is Lord,” or “He’s Everything to Me,” or “Goodnight.”


As the years changed, so did the music we sang. “How Majestic is Your Name,” “Emmanuel,” “This is the Day,” “I Will Call Upon the Lord,” and “Open Our Eyes, Lord” would be the music that filled camp chapels and night air around campfires. I have no idea what songs will be sung today, but I suspect these young folks will remember them long into their adult life.


Regardless of what music has been sung through the years, God’s love and grace has burst forth from church camp grounds since their inception. Church camp makes a difference in kids’ lives and nothing will ever be able to replace the experience.


It’s difficult for me to choose one song to share today. There have been so many camp songs that have touched my life. But I need to make a choice. So I choose…


“Lord, I Lift Your Name on High”


Lord I lift your name on high
Lord I love to sing your praises
I’m so glad you are in my life
I’m so glad you came to save us.


You came from heaven to earth, to show the way
From the earth to the cross, my debt to pay
From the cross to the grave, from the grave to the sky
Lord I lift your name on high.[i]


Click here to listen to this fun tune…maybe you remember the motions that go along with it. If so, let’s do them together!


Grace and peace be yours in abundance,



[i] “Lord, I Lift Your Name on High,” lyrics and music by Rick Founds, 1989.
