Jesus sat in the b……………………….

“Jesus went out of the house and sat by the lake. Such large crowds gathered around him that he got into a boat and sat in it, while all the people stood on the shore. Then he told them many things in parables.”

-Matthew 13:1-3

One highlight of our camp week is “pontoon campfire”. Campers and staff pile into a pontoon, drift onto the lake, light candles, sing songs and tell stories. The experience is different than on land, around a blazing fire. The songs carry across the water, and the stories have a different impact. While we float, I imagine Jesus on the boat, with his voice carrying across the water. It just takes a different environment to make a story mean something different.
