Bobbing for Apples in a pan of Pork and Beans

If you read that title and didn’t even flinch then most likely you have spent some time in or around a youth ministry of some kind. The 4th annual Winter Retreat of the youth group at FUMC (and also DUMC, WUMC, and CHUMC) took place this weekend at a magical place known as Camp Hargis. The weekend was filled with all kinds of madness: people screaming at 5:00 in the morning while everyone is trying to sleep, playing a new game known as ‘pecker ball’ (think foursquare using your crotch instead of your hands), watching kids play really gross games (e.g. the title of this blog), and adults having probably WAY more fun than the kids did. All told it was  great weekend and it has wiped me out. I’ve got class in an hour and I am trying to wake up. More later!
