In the Colorado Wilderness

I just returned from seven days with other bishops in the wilderness of the Colorado Rockies.  In an effort to build deeper relationships and enhance unity in the Anglican movement in North America, we rock-climbed, rappelled, white-water rafted on the Arkansas River, back-packed and camped at 12,000 feet, fished, worshipped, studied some aspects of Biblical leadership, and were challenged and encouraged with personal coaching.

It was a physically challenging time.  It was a spiritually nurturing time.  And it was wonderful to share time with such godly men who love Jesus and desire to make a difference in our world for Him!  Below are some pics of our time in Colorado.
