but it sounds so cool...

enigma. i love the word because of its' near ambiquity - we all know how to use it, sort of, but we can't define it - but it is not EXACTLY what i am trying to say. one of its' definitions is "contradictory character" so that won't work. so i need help from all you smarty pants. mel and i have been praying, thinking, pondering about starting a youth leadership camp. the details are still VERY sketchy, but we know that it would involve a year-long commitment to a social need in the camper's community. and the goal would be to help develop Christian leaders who want to share the love of Christ by tackling these enormous social issues. so here is where enigma comes along. it was an idea for a name - "enigma leadership camps". i envisioned shirts with the "i am an enigma" tagline, sounds cool, huh? but not exactly right. so help me out folks... i need something that says i want to make a change for Christ in my community. i care about people and want to love them like Christ would. something that says i am different from all of the teens around me. oh yeah, it needs to be catchy and cool. okay... leave the suggestions in the comments. remember, your quilt is calling.
"Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world." James 1:27

LOVE LOVE LOVE this idea!!!!! Of course, camps should be in Colorado.

How about "I am....in Colorado"

;)

I'll keep thinking.

I saw a tagline for an online Christian/social justice magazine called "Wrecked for the Ordinary" - I like that - the idea of being "ruined" by what God has opened our eyes to - ruined beyond being anything ordinary anymore.
