St. Paul’s – Brookings

Fr. Larry Ort

Acts 17.22-31; Psalm 66.7-18; 1 Peter 3.13-22; John 14.15-21


It’s TEC Sunday. In a few moments, we will hear from some of last year’s campers and from some “old time campers.” Anyone who has experienced TEC is invited to share.


TEC is a good place to remember that God “made the world and everything in it;” a place to call to mind that God is “Lord of heaven and earth” who “does not live in shrines made by human hands” but “gives to all mortals life and breath and all things” (Acts 17.24; NRSV).


TEC is where many of our young people hear God speak to them in powerful ways. Consequently, they can say with the psalmist, “Come and listen, all you who fear God, and I will tell you what he has done for me” (Psalm 66.14; BCP).

TEC is also where many of our young people learn how to share Christ with others – “to make [their] defense to anyone who demands from [them] an accounting [of] the hope that is in [them]” (! Peter 3.15-16; NRSV).

Let’s listen to what our campers have to share!
