RP’s Summer Photo Contest: Enjoying God!

Whether this summer has you exploring new places, or staying in your own community, we can all experience joy in the Lord.

The first question of the Westminster Shorter Catechism asks “what is the chief end of man?” The answer is “to glorify God, and to enjoy Him forever.” Scripture urges us to “rejoice in the Lord always” (Phil 4:4) even amidst challenging circumstances (Hab. 3:17-18). We can have joy in salvation, in revelation (both Scripture and in nature), in communion with God and His saints, and even in tribulation (James 1:2).

Our theme for this photo contest is to capture ways in which we enjoy God. It could be through a hike in the forest, at a summer camp with children, peaceful time in a garden, a beautiful sunset, and so many other ways.

Take a picture and share your joy!
