Every summer campers and staff focus their prayers with a metaphysical theme. It is posted in the Alford Dining Hall, expanded upon during morning assemblies, and discussed throughout the summer. This year our theme is:
“The one Ego, the one Mind or Spirit called God, is infinite individuality…” Science and Health 281:14
Let’s celebrate the individuality of every child, counselor and staff member this summer! The word “infinite” really stood out to us year-round staff as an affirmation of how expansive God’s ideas – His children are. If God, Ego, is infinite individuality, then it follows that His children reflect unlimited qualities. That means two things: that we can celebrate our diversity because God made us each unique, and that each one of us has the right to know and see just how unlimited and infinite our individuality is.
For example, if I am knowing that I inherit all of God’s qualities, then I don’t have to buy into the suggestion that I’m only good at arts and crafts, and really don’t have any ability to play soccer. No! I deserve to see more of my “infinite individuality” than that. If God is Life, then I must express energy, teamwork and endurance. Just because I don’t think I can, or don’t see that side of myself yet, doesn’t mean it isn’t there! And camp, with its many activities and adventures, is such a supportive place for me to practice cherishing and demonstrating my infinitude.
What a wonderful way to lay the foundation for another adventure-filled summer with new friends – to know without a doubt that all of us, as unique ideas of Divine Love, can and do express our individuality completely.
