This is the day Abbie drives down to the Oregon coast to begin working on summer staff. College-aged summer staff at Twin Rocks Friends Camp do things like cleaning all the cabins on Saturday after one group of camps leaves and the next group comes in. They work in the dining room doing setup, helping with meal preparation, and washing dishes, pots, and pans. Around the grounds they weed and water flowers, empty garbage cans, and refill toilet paper holders. These and many other tasks are the visible work activities, but the more abstract and more significant thing that happens is Christian leadership development.

My husband and I occasionally talk about the "ministry of the chairs" - setting up or cleaning up a space for worship. I think that this is a visible lesson in servant leadership, and an essential part of Christian leadership development.

Thanks for using the words "servant leadership." That is something modeled by Twin Rocks staff--from the executive director on up.
