19.12.04 – Email to Camp Champs and Congregants

Dear Camp Champ/Congregational Life Staff,

I hope you received my email yesterday that shared a beautiful photo of the calm before the storm at Thanksgiving Camp!

I’m dropping a note today to share a testimonial from longtime camper and Ventura UU Laura Fahr, pictured right with her son Stefan in sunnier months!

Would you be willing to share it with your congregants?

It’s a beautiful testament to the power of Camp de Benneville Pines to shape people into the kinds of actors we need in the world: folks who live joyful lives that express kindness and compassion.

Our common spiritual home in the mountains is where congregants from across the Pacific Southwest reconnect with those values and imagine how they will express them “down the hill” in their daily lives.

Camp de Benneville Pines is a vital part of our UU experience here in our corner of the United States. Thank you for sharing a story of its power.

If you have ideas for other blog posts you’d like to see or other news of camp you’d like to share with your congregation, please let me know! We are better together — our UU congregations, our UUA, and our UU Covenanting Communities.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Wishing you well,
