Summer Camp Chapels 2020

We recorded most of the sessions for Training Camp and over half of the sessions for Youth Camp.

Fellowship Redefined (2020)

And they continued stedfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers. Acts 2:42

The ministry to “shut-ins” has changed through the years. I remember as a youth delivering cassette tapes to the homes of folks too sick to attend meetings of the local church. That short visit and perhaps a phone call was as much fellowship as these dear saints would get in a week.

Cassette Tapes became CDs. CDs became MP3s. MP3s have become live streaming. While many fellowships simply stream, which is like having a private TV channel, some use interactive streaming with tools like ZOOM (R} [].

We have been separated by distance and quarantine and medically necessary isolation for half of 2020. My wife and I have visited fellowships around the country, and even the world. My wife loves to attend a Women’s Bible… Continue reading

Joe Farmer Memorial

The entire video is 38 minutes long. It includes several minutes before and after the ceremony. The Bible reading begins at 12min 55sec and the ceremony ends at 31minutes. The remaining seven minutes includes the lowering of the casket. Most devices will allow you to use the slider to skip ahead.

Memorial Speaker’s Notes

We are gathered here to grieve the loss and to remember, honor, and celebrate the life of Joseph Ray Farmer, whom most knew as simply Joe. 

Joe was born March 25, 1942 to William Farmer in Anderson SC. 

With the loss of his birth mother at only one week of age, Joe was raised by his father’s second wife Edith, the only Mom he ever knew. He loved Edith and honored her with a memorable Mother’s Day sermon about Mothers of adopted children. Joe loved and honored both parents, attending to… Continue reading

Web Meeting Basics

Online meetings have grown in popularity in virtually every sector of society. Education, corporations, small business, and families now “meet online”.

Over twenty years ago I met in a little room at a Kinkos®️ Copies for classes being hosted in Dallas Texas and attended all over the country. Today, a meeting like that can be hosted from anywhere and attended anywhere that the internet can be accessed. The only technology needed today is a phone. This technology now makes it possible for people from anywhere in the world to meet together without travel.

There are many ways to host or attend an online meeting. Their are advantages and disadvantages with any of them. Here are some of the current ways to host or attend a meeting. **Disclaimer: Other than owning a few shares of ZOOM, I have no financial connections with any of these hosting… Continue reading

More Valuable Than Olympic Gold

Knowing that you were not redeemed with perishable things like silver or gold from your futile way of life inherited from your forefathers, but with precious blood, as of a lamb unblemished and spotless, the blood of Christ.  1 Peter 1:18-19

While gold is the highest prize and greatest honor that the games can offer, it is not the most valuable currency in the universe.  It has been a pleasure to see many Olympic athletes openly express their faith in Christ in Rio.  These dear brothers and sisters in Christ understand the temporal (temporary) value of Gold in contrast to the eternal (forever) value of the precious blood of Christ.

KNOWING  THAT GOLD HAS NO ETERNAL VALUE – Peter is writing to believers to challenge them to live a life that reflects the holiness of God.  It is knowing that… Continue reading

I can go to her


Thought for the morning – written with tears

 2 Samuel 12:22-23  And he (David) said, “While the child was alive, I fasted and wept; for I said, ‘Who can tell whether the LORD will be gracious to me, that the child may live?’ 23  But now he is dead; why should I fast? Can I bring him back again? I shall go to him, but he shall not return to me.”

When a loved one is going through the final steps of leaving this world, we who love this one agonize before the Lord with many tears, prayers and supplications. We may plead with the Lord, but we always know it is not our will but His that is to be done.

David fasted and wept for his newly born son who was deathly ill; born of Bathsheba, the… Continue reading

Ted Sleeps

For if we believe that Jesus died and rose again, even so them also which sleep in Jesus will God bring with him

1 Thessalonians 4:14

This week we honor and remember “Ted” (Thor) Thisse.  He was the director of Camp Horizon in the 1970s during the transition to the current property in Leesburg, Florida.

I was fifteen when Ted came to our chapel to talk about Camp Horizon.  His laugh was infectious and his winning smile made me like him the moment we met.  I was an awkward teen with a love for the the Lord, but not a lot of social maturity.  What I did have was a lifeguard certificate and could sail small boats.  I didn’t know that I could wash dishes and sweep floors, but I learned that and more on the Camp Horizon summer staff.… Continue reading
