Twenty-seven interviews in two days. Needless to say, we are deep in the thick of interviewing summer staff for 09.
We travel up and down the state (and around the country) chatting it up with potential staff. Sure we ask some of the cheesey interview questions and sure some people come dressed in a suit and tie and sure everybody’s nervous, but I love it. We catch all these glimpses of the greatest commandment being lived out in college-aged students lives.
We may not flat out ask, “Do you love the Lord your God with all your heart, mind, soul, and strength? and “Do you love your neighbor as yourself?” But in the way they share about navigating confrontation, putting others needs above their own,and living out their faith, they answer “yes” to both of THE questions.
It’s simple. It’s beautiful. And the icing on the cake is seeing Echo Alumni (like Johnny, Caitlin, PJ, Sarah, Lisa, and Lorianne) who I have seen live out these great commandments during summer apply to come not just as campers, but as staff.
