Calling all men to enjoy “Wild Places”

I want to encourage men to get out into wild places.  I see many men and young men these days afraid of, or unfamiliar with, the wilderness.  It is important to go there for renewal and focus.  I understand how hard it is to carve out time for you.  We are so busy with our jobs, families, church work, yard work, and life in general that we don’t, as men, go to the woods alone.  We are also insulated from wild places in our suburban and city homes.  It takes more time and effort to get to these…See More

Fatherhood, Faith, and the Outdoors

Posted on April 25, 2012 at 4:15pm 3 Comments

I feel a strong and consistent calling to get men outdoors.  There is a huge outdoor deficit among men today.  They are afraid or intimidated or just don’t get how important it is. 

I also see a huge father hunger among men for their own fathers, and doubts about fathering their own children.

My Christian faith has never been stronger, but I am so frustrated with organized churches.  Jesus went to the wilderness, or went up a mountain or off by himself to reconnect with his…
