This summer we invite you to journey with our campers and staff by connecting to our Rubbaboo theme in each edition. "Rubbaboo" is a Voyageur term referring to the boiled-up mixture of flour and pemmican (meat) that sustained the Voyageurs each day along the fur trade. In camp, Rubbaboo is the sustaining nourishment of our day - Bible Study!
An encounter with God changes us. Today's stories are about two men, a man born blind and the general Namaan, who encountered God's healing love and as a result, they were transformed. We don't have to be perfect, or even ready, for God's healing love to reach us. Through God's love we are given a fresh start each day. In both of these stories, we experience Jesus' healing powers and the transformations of God's people.
But his servants approached and said to him, 'Father, if the prophet had commanded you to do something difficult, would you not have done it? How much more, when all he said to you was, "Wash, and be clean"?' So he went down and immersed himself seven times in the Jordan, according to the word of the man of God; his flesh was restored like the flesh of a young boy, and he was clean. 2 Kings 5:13-14
