They don't call it a retreat, but an Advance. Good idea. I spent this past weekend with 23 other men at RockRidge Canyon, a SunLife facility near Princeton, BC. Located on a beautiful lake, secluded, and beautiful. Donors have funded one of the most attractive conference and camping venues for children and youth, churches and Christian organizations. The men came from Abbotsford Evangelical Free Church. I preached there for two months during Pastor Randy Lemke's sabbatical. I was invited to be their guest at this Advance. There was a spiritual purpose of course. We studied about Walking with God and Walking with one another. Resort style meals and free time to walk, to build and shoot rockets and watch deer, loons on the lake, eagles and magpies. And, proved that I am still a Ping Pong Player to be reckoned with.
