SEP Theme, 2017

SEP Theme, 2017

SEP has a theme each year. The previous two years have seen themes on 'Family', and on 'One Way, Jesus'. This year the Camp Director Jackie Mill has centred on the following scripture for 2017's theme at SEP;

1 John 4:19.
We love Him because He first loved us (King James Translation).

Jackie adds, "It is humbling to know just how much God loves us and that he loves us unconditionally."

"We love him because He first loved us." 1 John 4:19

God is as always at the start, first in everything, and here, he is of course first too.

He first loved us.

Communicate like a Pro at SEP

Ah. Communication and SEP.

A beautiful thing. Like strawberries and cream, cheese and wine.

Making allowances helps it stay that way, and helps you avoid strawberries-and-cheese moments.

And even if two or more people find themselves matching their strawberries with their cheese, making allowances helps us laugh our way through the combination.

My earliest SEP strawberry-and-cheese moment was in 1985.

The miscommunication vehicle was… The Accent.

I'd just met an Irish girl and I was explaining where I came from, when suddenly she wanted to know 'Did you have Vertigo?'

Writing it now, it reads as though it was out of context. That's because it was.

Or so I thought.

But I had simply misunderstood the accent.

She was simply enquiring as to whether I 'had far to go'.

Why SEP is NOT a 2wk activity camp!

True or False – is SEP a two week Christian Activity Camp for young people?

Well, true… and false!

Let me explain.

SEP camp. It IS of course a two week Christian Activity Camp.

But it's also so much more than that. And that's not accidental.

SEP was always designed to have a real and lasting positive impact on later life opportunities, social, or in employment, or recreational. It was designed to be relevant to the world we live in; where Campers can gain skills and insights about themselves.

The SEP Board and Management wants all Campers to be the 'best them' that they can be, and make the most of the boundless opportunities life can offer, as well be ready to face challenges in life. SEP is continually adapted to stay relevant for Campers and the changing world they live in.

Let's look at that changing world.
