This past weekend I had the joy and honor of teaching and preaching at The Salvation Army's Long Point Camp on Seneca Lake in upstate New York. The camp's setting couldn't be more beautiful, nor (to my soul, anyway) more conducive to worship.
The tabernacle, where the large worship gatherings were held, is the centerpiece of the camp, which has been in operation here for about sixty years, situated on 138 acres bordering Seneca Lake, the largest of New York's Finger Lakes.
The tabernacle is a spacious, beautiful, and breezy spot, illuminated in part by two circular cross-etched windows at either end. Sunday morning's worship was preceded by beautifully and thoughtfully planned prayer stations around the tabernacle's perimeter. It was a blessing to not only participate but to see so many people approaching worship in that way.
I don't expect to forget that weekend in the Long Point Camp tabernacle. God's Holy Spirit and his responsive people made it a holy place for me.
