About this blog

Brian Frick is the Associate for Camp and Conferences Ministries with the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.). He has been involved in camp and conference ministry since high school. For the past ten years, Brian has served as program director of Johnsonburg Center in New Jersey, Westminster Woods in California, and Heartland Center in Missouri.

Camp and conference ministry compliments and partners with other ministry aspects of our church to foster faith development and reflection. As our communities and our church changes, our ministries need to grow and adapt with creative and emergent programming and leadership to meet new realities.

These blogs entries, though varied, are intended to spur thought and conversation around the opportunities and challenges before us.

Bruce Reyes-Chow Comments on Cheers for Executions

Rick Perry gets Cheers at Debate on Record of Numbers of Executions in Texas

Yes, cheering for executions.  Surprising?  I find it to be so.  Basically at the Republican debate this week, when responding to a question Republican Presidential candidate, Rick Perry, touted his record number of excecutions in Texas while he was Govenor.  The crowd applauded.

Past PCUSA Moderator, Rev. Bruce Reyes-Chow, weighs in on the theological response to this topic.  Reading the comments on his blog is quite enlightening too.  Where do you stand on this issue?

Read his blog here.

What does this have to do with camp and conference ministry you may ask?  Probably nothing but I find all information informs us and enables us to respond to questions from a theological grounding.
