What does the shirt mean anyway?

Now, without further ado, the meaning of the camp shirt:

The front of the Camp Tallowood 2012 shirt features seven symbols. We’ve heard many guesses, but now you get to hear the real deal.

The seven symbols represent attitudes of worship. They are stick figures showing how we respond to God as we walk through life.

The first symbol shows rebellion. Our back is turned to God like in Romans 3:23.

The second symbol shows apathy. We’re willing to listen to God, but we’re not exactly happy about it (Romans 1:18-25).

The third symbol shows attentiveness. God has gotten our attention and we are facing him with intrigue (John 3:16 and John 14:6).

The fourth symbol shows submission. We’re on our knees asking God if He can really use us and telling Him that we’re willing (Acts 2:37-39 and Psalm 51).

The fifth symbol shows humility. We don’t feel worthy of God and we’re asking for Him to forgive our sins like in Proverbs 3:34 and James 4:10.

The sixth symbol shows reception. We are receiving God and committing ourselves to Him (I Timothy 1:16 and Acts 1:8).

The seventh and final symbol shows us going. We have accepted God’s call and we’re ready to go out and follow His instruction (Revelation 22:7 and Matthew 28:19-20).

During their quiet time each day this week, our students are evaluating their current attitude toward God. Which symbol represents where they are at this exact moment?

Parents, will you ask your student how their response to God changed throughout their week at camp?
