On The Road Again: Part II- Hot Springs, AR

Last week I was keynoting at a camp in Gonzles, TX (Read about it here). This week I will hitting the road once more heading to Hot Springs, Arkansas to keynote a Middle School (6-8 grade) camp.

A friend of mine from seminary is co-directing this event. (Read her blog here). The curriculum this particular region is doing is entitled “Secrets of the Kingdom” and focuses on the parables of Jesus. To ‘kick it up a notch‘, the directors decided to incorporate some fun with the theme. They came up with centering the theme around the early 1990s throwback to “Legends of the Hidden Temple” game show. When I heard that, I was sold.

The reasoning was simple; in the show the contestants were trying to find an artifact that was hidden somewhere in the Temple. Once found, all the doors of the Temple opened and they had to chose which way they wanted to escape. Jesus spoke a lot in parables and there are messages of truth hidden with in them. Once we find the messages we then have a choice on what to do next, sit on it or try to get it out to other people.

I remember watching that show and wanting to be a participate. I wanted to win a CD player or Casio Keyboard. I could win if given the chance.

The youths will be divided into the six Legend teams: Red Jaguars, Blue Barracudas, Green Monkeys, Orange Iguanas, Purple Parrots and the Silver Snakes.

I am looking forward to my second keynote of the year.

Be sure to stay tuned for updates and watch an episode of “Legends of the Hidden Temple” below. The winning team might get to go to space camp! (too bad we dont go to space any more :-/)

In Christ,
