A Week in August
70 Years Changing Lives at a School Christian Camp
There’s a real sense of posterity and pride in A Week in August. Author David Hawker reflects on an institution established in 1951, in which he played an active role for decades and revisits later in life. The comparison between generations is a strong platform from which Hawker comments on changing times and attitudes. This perspective makes his ideas, and by association the goals of the camp itself, even more meaningful and vital - particularly in an age of spiritual ennui. By remembering this valuable fellowship in print, the camp enters the realms of posterity with a bright hope for the future. Remembered with fondness and the ever-present notion in that everything we experience can teach us something, this is a valuable work for future and past generations both.
