This past week, my family and I went on vacation to Hendersonville, North Carolina to the Kanuga Conference Center. This was the third year of being chaplain for Kanuga’s Summer Guest Period. Kanuga has a long-standing history of families going there for extended stays for the past 60-70 years. Many of the families we met had been going to Kanuga for generations. It is an annual gathering place for families who are spread all over the United States to reconnect and renew themselves.
Getting to be the chaplain was a real treat. It was a little bit of work, though. Families arrive on Saturday and leave on the following Saturday, and the week is full of activities for everyone. There are 2 worship services in the chapel on Sunday, evening prayers (Vespers) almost every night, and a Bible Study on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday that I was responsible for overseeing. Also, I had to make sure there were blessings said before every meal. Read more…..
