Jesus and Camp Meeting

by J. Mark Jordan, July 2016

There are times when we need to take another look at the things we do, the customs we embrace, and the routines we follow. Camp Meeting is one of those customs.

But these are regular occurrences in many of our churches. Is there something more? Absolutely! It’s called unity. Do not disregard the value of unity among the churches and saints. It was a priority with Jesus. Here’s what I think of unity.
