Great time at Horn Creek















For the third straight year our family enjoyed a great time of refreshment and fellowship at Horn Creek.

In addition to five families from Redeemer coming, Shari's parents and brothers came.

Highlights included white-water rafting, climbing Horn Peak again, hiking every day, and absolutely destroying Shari on the hanging log.
I could not recommend Horn Creek family camp more highly.

Did you make it to the top of Horn Peak? I remember starting the climb with a whole passel of confident teenagers (I was one), but only 4 or 5 made it to the top (I was not one). That elevation is beautiful but brutal!

In addition to the fun, faith, and fellowship, I also remember getting camp T-shirts that must have been printed by a Baptist--they read "Horn Creek Prespyterian Camp". :)

Glad you had fun and made it back safely.

Great photos Tony.

yep...I made it...by God's sustaining (not infused) grace. :)

That pic of you and Shari was awesome! I remember in another life, for several years I took my family to the beautiful Baptist church camp in Glorieta, New Mexico. Those are some treasured memories for me. It was an entire week of learning, surrounded by other believers drinking in God’s Word and enjoying His magnificent creation. Maybe next year, if the Lord provides, Cheri and I can join the group for some new Reformed memories?

Great job! Don't you mean that Jesus made it on your behalf and, although you were collapsed down at the tree line gasping for breath, told the Father to treat you as if you had made it? :)

No...not exactly. Two distinct things happened. First, God united me together with His Son by faith. The righteousness of Christ was imputed to me some time ago. Second, ever since that initial act of regeneration (which was simultaneous with justification, adoption, union with Christ etc.) God has continued to grant grace to die unto sin and live unto righteousness- climbing the mountain was part of that sanctification work.

Climbing the moutain towards sanctification! What a Great Metaphor Pastor Super T!

I'm suprised you did not bring back the deer in the photo.
