Bruce’s Blog: Why Talk Foul? (WTF)


Twenty years ago I made my first Friday night service speech. I’ll always remember it for three reasons. 1. I was very nervous. 2. I didn’t do a very good job and 3. The most important reason was the theme of the service: “The Importance of Words”. The fundamental message was that what we say and how we say it has a huge impact on the person or people we are speaking to. This has always been important but in today’s society, this message is even more crucial as we become more casual with communication and way more sophisticated due to technology, at the same time. Child and adolescent communication to adults has become very informal and a whole new language of acronyms has emerged in the world of texting, twitter, facebook and email. However, the basic premise of that service twenty years ago is just as relevant today. Continue reading »

What Camp Means To Me: Matt Blankenstein


What does camp mean to me? To me camp means to be in a cabin full of your closest buddies. To go out and spend the day with them having fun in the summer sun, and no matter what you’ll always have a smile on your face. Not one moment at Camp Wahanowin is dull moment because of all the constant programs the camp does. Olympiad, Survivor, and even Saturday Night Live are some of the camp programs that make the camp full of energy and excitement. Camp Wahanowin is like a giant family I find – there are just too many great memories to list. Continue reading »
