Sunnyside Camp 2013, part 2: Sylvan Lake

For our two kids, one of the highlights of the week-long camp was the time each afternoon spent at the small stretch of beach sand by the lake, during which time I sketched what turned out to be a challenging but interesting subject. But for me, I would have to say that the baptisms that took place were the climax of our stay, as four young women made public their declaration of faith through baptism. "Being dunked" in a real body of water makes it rather dramatic, and our unshaven pastor began to resemble John the Baptist... if you look closely, it's almost as if you can see a dove descending from heaven amongst the clouds closing in.

"If you declare with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved." Romans 10:9 (NIV)
