Compass Check: Summer 2022
Dear Compass Checkers, In the last Compass Corner, we talked about the coming events of this spring and summer. I hope the Holy Days were profitable for you and that you were able to make plans for summer camp. My family will be attending Camp Cotubic and Camp Pinecrest this year, and I look forward to seeing many of you there!
In this issue of Compass Check, we have quite an array of topics for your reading pleasure. Our cover article, “Who Was Jesus,” explores the persona of Jesus. We know He was God in the flesh and is our savior, but what kind of person was He to be around?
We also will spend some time talking about two lies our societies tell us about being a woman. There are a couple of common stereotypes that don’t align with what your Bible shows to be true, and that causes quite a bit of frustration and emphasizes wrong values.
Then there’s the subject of painful wounds. Our world can be a painful one at times, and perhaps some of you have experienced that most painful of losses, losing a parent. A first-time contributor shares her story of losing her father, and what she has learned to help with healing of that father wound.
This issue also welcomes back our Managing Editor and new mom, Kourtney Kovanis. She shares what she’s learned from watching her daughter, and how it relates to our struggles and growth as Christians.
How many of you play a musical instrument? We’ll look at how the practice it takes to master an instrument relates to growing in Biblical knowledge. Finally, we’ll take a look at some practical ways we can more effectively serve at our local church services.
