Today we celebrated the Christian Sabbath Day. The Christian children sang “This Little Light of Mine,” read from scripture, lighted candles as they each said a prayer, and said the Lord’s Prayer together in Arabic and English. They shared the many different ways that their churches hold Sunday worship services, as they are Catholic, Orthodox, Episcopalian (Anglican) and Baptist. The Jerusalem children were excited to call home today. Everyone enjoyed their last swim and kayaking at the lake, and one girl led us in a blessing she made up to thank God for the lake, for all those who swim and kayak in it, and for all the creatures of the lake. Our final activity was a campfire where each child received a picture of us all at Camp Merrowvista to keep for a memory. In the morning we pack up and head to Boston!
