Getting back to the basics and reclaiming our community parks
On a warm Saturday in April, we met for the weekly prayer walk in center city Vineland. After the walk we joined another church group at Landis Park and began to play a variety of old time favorite games- It was only a matter of time before you heard joyous shouts of “way to go” and “great catch” start to echo through the park. The smiles on the faces of everyone reminded me of how important PLAY is in creating those special memories- the kind of memories that start off with, “remember the time that you showed me how to play wiffle ball or how to catch a baseball?” Through PLAY, you learn so many important life lessons that no computer game can teach: Honesty-Caring-Respect and Responsibility!
Beloved, I pray that all may go well with you and that you may be in good health, as it goes well with your soul.
