Obedience brings Blessing
Wendy Witas
August 26, 2021

I always think that one of the most amazing stories of obedience is the story of Abraham. He really didn’t know God that well but he trusts him enough to obey when he says to move. He trusts him enough to give his own son. He trusts him to learn what this God of love is about.

Finding Camp Meeting Community in a Pandemic
Jonathan Russell
May 20, 2021

My first real memory of camp meeting in Oregon was through the service window of the Snack Shack. I was an awkward kid from the Midwest who had no idea what camp meeting was all about. But if you were at Gladstone in 1995, there’s a good chance I handed your Pronto Pups and Shamburgers to you through the window. I didn’t know much. Yet even through that tiny window into the camp meeting world, I could see the connection, the camaraderie, the joy that came from Gladstone Camp Meeting.

"Forgive our debts..." What about ourselves?
Sara Withers

“Do what you say you are going to do.” This is a motto living in my mind every day. I’m realizing more and more that if I make plans to do something, even if those plans were just made in my mind and not said out loud, I feel obligated to follow through. If I don’t follow through I think of myself as “not good," a failure.
