I have been to junior camp Midwest and East, but this is my first year at teen camp. All of the Camp Gilgal campsites have many things in common. One of these things are memory verses. Every year at camp, there are some verses we try to memorize. If everyone in your tribe memorizes the verses, does a Gilgal Gazette article, and get as average of 85% on cabin clean up your tribe gets to go to the end of camp party. This year’s memory verses are 2 Corinthians 5:16-21. The theme of this memory verse is reconciliation. Being reconciled basically means being forgiven. The verses teach that God reconciled us to himself through Messiah. I feel that since God forgave us that we should forgive other people. This memory verse is helping me understand what God and Jesus did for us. I love knowing that I have God’s Word in my heart.
