Geocache Description:

The waypoint above is not the real cache waypoint; you have to figure it out. Can you find the third cache the pastors did?

Brought to you by your friendly neighbourhood
Maritime Geocaching Association

One day 3 pastors went for a walk in Clayton Park and decided to do some geocaching. First they went and found A Ducky Vantage Point. When they located it, Pastor Luke said:

"And the child grew and became strong in spirit; and he lived in the desert until he appeared publicly to Israel.
And he began by saying to them, 'Today this scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.'"

Next, they went on to Bridges in Burbs. Upon finding that cache, Pastor Mark said:

"He told them, 'The secret of the kingdom of God has been given to you. But to those on the outside everything is said in parables'.
They all ate and were satisfied."

Continuing to walk north, after about 300m they came to this cache. Upon discovering it, Pastor Matthew stated:

"Do not store up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy, and where thieves break in and steal.
But store up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where moth and rust do not destroy, and where thieves do not break in and steal."

After the find, they visited the nearby hill and went sliding.

The three pastors found this cache. Can you?

There are a few popular sliding spots around the Halifax peninsula. This is part of a series of caches to show you where they are. Thanks go out to Dragonflys for first telling me about the hill near the cache location and leaving it open for me to add it to the series. The above coordinates are for the hill itself; you have to figure out where the cache is. You can check your answers for this puzzle here.
