We Must Be Awfully Small and Not as Strong as We Think We Are

By Rebecca Colson, CBM National Intern- This line from a song by Rich Mullins came to my mind while working as a counselor at camp. I had noticed some things that the other counselors had been doing that I thought they ought to be doing differently. With all my expertise and wisdom on the matter, I pointed it out to the counselors. After I did, one of them, a junior counselor a good 7 years younger than me, politely asked, “How many times have you been a summer counselor before?”  I paused for a moment before replying, “Once.” While she was a good deal younger than me, this girl had far more camp counseling experience than I had. She ...

A New Adventure

By Ryan Everritt, CBM National Intern - Throughout my time here at Cornerstone Ministry Center, though it's only been a month, I've been learning how to work really hard.  Sometimes, I just want to work the way I like to, but it is a new experience to learn from a different perspective. My time here as an intern has been a learning experience. And it's only the “half-end” of the year-long internship.

As White as Snow

By Rhiannon Grace, CBM National Intern - “We will have our sins washed white as snow.” That is a very common theme in a lot of Christian songs and books but, growing up where I did, I am not sure that I have ever fully understood that phrase. After all, I only saw snow twice in California. The first time, my best friend had been watching the weather forecast for two weeks and there was a 40% chance of snow, which was the highest we had ever seen it. It snowed just enough to make two muddy snowballs, after searching the whole yard for surfaces it could land on, such as tarps or cars. The second time was when we were camping in the Sierra ...

A Note to the Parents

Written by Jacquelyn Davis, National Intern Coordinator - Hello parents and grandparents! This blog is for you. We often write from the interns’ perspective, and usually to prospective interns, but today I want to write to all the parents, grandparents, friends and family members of those prospective interns. Maybe you are looking at the internship page because you think it would something you would like your son or daughter to do. Maybe it is because they have mentioned the program and are interested in it themselves. Or maybe you're lost in the vast space we call the Internet. Whatever the case may be, welcome. I want to take a few minutes to ...
