In the Fold

We hope you all had a wonderful Fourth of July yesterday! Today, we're continuing campiversary with more from GMBA Campout at Cal U of PA.

GMBA 2017 Tues 1

The topic for Tuesday's camp seminars was "In the Fold." This topic is based on the parable of the lost sheep that were found in Luke 15:4-7. Verse 4 states, "What man of you, having an hundred sheep, if he lose one of them, doth not leave the ninety and nine in the wilderness, and go after that which is lost, until he find it?"

I asked the following sisters the question, "What does 'In the Fold' mean to you?"

Sister Betty D'Orazio, Metuchen, NJ Branch: "Being in the fold gives us a feeling of salvation and being 'In' with the Lord."

Sister Rose Milantoni, Branch 2 Detroit, Michigan: "I am in the safety zone."

Sister Cindy Hood, Mesa, AZ Branch: "The Lord has a blanket over me, and I am protected."

Sister Marlene Ciccati, San Diego, CA Branch: "Peace of mind."

Sister Mary Duncan, Mesa, AZ Branch: "I feel loved."

Sister Carol Monaghan, Aliquippa, PA Branch: "Complete joy."

Collectively, these sisters have a lot of wisdom and spiritual years in the church. They made their way to the camp to rejoice in being part of the fold.

What does "In the Fold" mean to you? Post a comment with your answer.

    "In" The Fold to me means "Perfect Love, Such Perfect Love."

    The fact that GOD loved mankind enough to give HIS ONLY BEGOTTEN SON willingly for us is unfathomable. JESUS died for all of our sins, all of our sicknesses and all of our pains so that we could be "In" HIS fold.
