Holy Spirit Anglican Church is sponsoring its third annual Men’s Campout and Hike to be held on June 5-7 at Riverside County Park in Idyllwild, CA. The event is open to men from all churches in the San Diego Deanery and promises to be a great outdoors adventure for the attendees. Fr. Brian Hughes, who is the event coordinator, writes that “the weekend offers a unique time to be together as men of faith, to be in a different environment than we normally are, and thus perhaps a bit more open to hearing God's voice. Each of the past two hikes we have done have been significant experiences for those who went on them and have forged bonds of friendship between us.” Fr. James Linton (Christ Church Yucaipa) will lead the retreat discussions. (read more...)
