Praying for the Downer family

Most of you, if not all, know that Reg Downer was Promoted to Glory earlier this week and his funeral service, more correctly called a celebration of life was held today.

I know you'll be praying for his family!

Reg was a strong supporter of youth ministry and that included the camping ministry of Camp Selkirk. We remember the words of Scripture which say: "the Lord delights in the death of His saints".

Campfire Cheers

Do you remember Campfire Cheers? They were used to show appreciation (or disapproval in some cases) after a group performed a song, skit or other form of entertainment at a campfire.

Last week, my children were playing with an electronic toy. I’ve been listening to this toy for the past 3 or 4 years. It never triggered anything before, but the other day when it played the tune “London Bridge Is Falling Down”, it immediately brought to mind the campfire cheer that uses that tune to these words: “In the breadbox you must go, you must go, you must go, in the breadbox you must go, that was crummy.”

That was the only cheer I could remember. Does anyone remember more of them?
